NBA activists lay siege to NCA office

INDORE, DEC. 11. Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) activists, led by its leader Ms. Medha Patkar, today laid siege to the Narmada Control Authority (NCA) office demanding that they be shown the rehabilitation plan drawn by the NCA.

Hundreds of NBA activists occupied the rooms of the NCA office and demanded that until the NCA member, Mr. N.D. Tiwari talk to them.

The NCA officials informed them that Mr. Tiwari was out of station, but the activists were in no mood to listen and insisted that they should talk to him.

A large number of police personnel were helplessly watching the situation and senior administration officials had no option but to ask for more police force.

Talking to presspersons, Ms. Patkar said as long as the NCA did not come out with a plan as directed by the court along with the availability of land, the NBA activists would not disperse.

There was no land for the displaced people up to the height of 80 m and even NCA officials had not given permission for resuming the dam construction beyond 90 m, she said.

Ms. Patkar said they had written a letter to the NCA officials requesting them to show the rehabilitation plan drawn by the NCA till November 19, as directed by the court.
