Narmada activists detained at Baroda, Domkhedi
Nearly 30 activists of the Narmada Bachao Andolan, including Justice (retd) Rajendra Sachar, were detained on Thursday morning at Baroda and over 500 at Domkhedi while they were on their way to participate in the Saga of Narmada programme.
The programme, scheduled for Thursday, was to appeal to the nation's conscience regarding the points raised by the people of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat against the Sardar Sarovar Project and other dams in the Narmada valley.
On demanding to know the reasons for the police action, the activists were told that the Madhya Pradesh government had demanded their detention. "Breach of peace and other such atrocious reasons were also given," NBA activist Sanjay Sangvai said.
The police control room in Baroda confirmed the detention of people in Baroda.
