  • On his birthday, PM Modi to inaugurate world's second biggest dam

On his birthday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate Sardar Sarovar Dam to the nation at Kevadia in Gujarat tomorrow.

The filling of reservoir with water should be stopped immediately and the dam's gates should remain open so as to reduce the water level, she demanded.

"With the inauguration of the project, over 18 lakh hectares of land in the state will benefit through irrigation as Narmada waters will flow to over 9,000 villages of Gujarat through a canal network", Rupani added.

The release said, "Sardar Sarovar Dam project has helped transport the waters of the River Narmada, to the water-deficient areas of Gujarat through an elaborate canal and pipeline network".

Teen In Slender Man Trial Ruled Mentally Ill
Because of the plea, jurors on Friday were examining only whether she was legally responsible because of mental illness. They noted Weier didn't clearly tell anyone she was afraid of Slender Man until after the stabbing.


The new gates of the Sardar Sarovar Dam raise the height of the dam to 138.68 metres.

The official said the 1.2-km-long dam which is 163 metres deep has till date produced 4,141 crore units of electricity from its two power houses - river bed powerhouse and canal head powerhouse - with an installed capacity of 1,200 MW and 250 MW, respectively. It is also the second biggest dam in the world after the Grand Coulee Dam in the United States. The protesters alleged that on Wednesday night in Nisarpur village of Barwani, the shivling of a Shiva temple at the banks Narmada tributary Uri-Baghni, was uprooted by force despite the opposition of the people of Narmada valley.

Medha Patkar is holding a "jal satyagraha" along with 40 other women in Barwani district. Majority of the work related to Narmada project was completed during the years that our party was in power. In 1996, the construction work was suspended following a stay by the Supreme Court. However, the apex court had set a condition that permission to increase the dam height would be given in parts after the project-affected-people (PAP) are resettled or compensated. "People will drown in the Narmada river but they will not move".

At several places on its route, the yatra faced hostile crowds protesting against the claims of the state government of providing Narmada dam waters across the parched regions of Gujarat. "After Modiji became Prime Minister, the go-ahead was given within a few days", Gujarat chief minister Rupani said.
