Sarpanches to launch kar sewa at SSP site

VADODARA: A meeting of the sarpanches of villages in the Vadodara district to be held on Tuesday in the city will chalk out a programme for launching kar sewa at the Sardar Sarovar dam site at Kevadia in the neighbouring Narmada district, about 110 km from here.

The kar sewa programme is to be held at the dam site in the beginning of the first week next month. The meeting is to be held in the presence of the kisan leader Sharad Joshi.

About three lakh people from various states of the country are expected to attend it. The kar sewa will be the biggest programme ever organised at the dam site.

Mr Joshi is convinced on the need for completing the work on the project and utilisation of canal water for quenching the thirst of the people of Saurashtra and Kutch. For making this programme a success, Mr Joshi and his colleagues visited a number of places in the state and addressed many meetings. They came down heavily upon the opponents of the project.

Mr Joshi has criticised the Narmada activist Medha Patkar for opposing this project saying she was getting foreign assistance for her agitation.

Mr Joshi is opposed to any review of the project or setting up of another tribunal for deciding the height of the project saying the height of the dam was fixed by the Narmada Water Dispute Tribunal (NWDT).
