Kejriwal opposed to big dams in NE

Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal strongly defended protest against big dams in the North East. Addressing a gathering in Guwahati, he said that the dam had been taken up without transperancy. He said that dams are required for power generation. But, he said, the process has to be transparent and any such projects should be taken up only with the consent of the local and affected people. He asked the KMSS activists and their leader Akhil Gogoi to unite with other such movements in states like Uttarakhand and create a nation-wide movement.
