It took 51 people stay immersed in a river for 14 days to make the Madhya Pradesh government swing into action. On Saturday morning at 9am, state Industries Minister Kailash Vijavargiya will meet a delegation of activists from Narmada Bachao Andolan to resolve the protest in Khandwa district. To control the water level in Narmada, which is flowing above the danger levels, state government had ordered opening all the gates of Omkareshwar dam in Madhya Pradesh. The move will eventually leave 30 villages made of 4,000 families submerged in water. Protesters say that according to Supreme Court judgment, the state government should have rehabilitated them, six months before taking any such step.
