Narmada Dam(ned)

Medha with two other volunteers is on the seventh day of her indefinite fast.
Ms Patkar continues her struggle against the plans of raising the height of the Sardar Sarovar Dam and refused to break her fast even as Union Water Resources Minister Saifuddin Soz met her on the seventh day of the agitation today.
says the Chandigarh Tribune.

and this: PM Manmohan Singh is learnt to be keen that the issue be resolved says a TOI article.yes, learnt to be keen! now, you can go sleep in peace.

The raising of the height goes against the supreme court ruling claims NB!B!A (Narmada Bachao! Bachao! Andolan). Perhaps, soon somebody will be needed to save the Andolan itself. The issue of rehabilation has not been settled. The struggle has been on for 6 years! Sometimes you wonder how much struggle will break the indifference of these government that come one after another.

This is representative dmeocracy?
