KMSS stages anti-dam protest

The Krushak Mukti Sangram Samity on Tuesday hit the streets across the state in protest against the Lower Subansiri Hydroelectric Power project at Gerukamukh along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border.

Led by KMSS president Akhil Gogoi, the organization is holding the statewide protest against the NHPC-owned power project alleging the possibility of the adverse impact of the big dams in the downstream areas in Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts.

Notably, stiff resistance by KMSS forced NHPC to halt the mega construction at Gerukamukh on this day three years back. KMSS along with 30 other local organizations recently agreed to set up an expert panel to study the cumulative impact of the mega dams in the downstream areas.
