Collective Warning Fast by Narmada Bachao Andolan activists ends
The three-day long Collective Warning Fast (Samuhik Chetavani Upwas) by Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) activists at Bhopal eneded yesterday. It did draw attention of the State and society (to the extent possible) towards the crisis and corruption in Sardar Sarovar Project, the activists claimed.

The 35 women, men including the elderly adivasis who went on 3 days continuous fast with students, interns and activists, gained strength by raising a voice against utter injustice and challenging the governments of MP, Maharashtra, Gujarat and the Union, said a release by NBA.  

Others joined them on relay fast in batches, making the atmosphere at the place of agitation, serene yet intense. All those who have fought for last 30 years, are again on a renewed mode of struggle since the judiciary too is being buffed by the State; filing false data and affidavits and not complying with orders.

"Neither Shivraj Singh Chauhan nor the Chief Secretary of MP could spare a minute for NBA's delegation, even to receive the memorandum. Present CM, MP has never initiated nor responded to any non-violent people's struggle for a dialogue. He avoids it sending deceptive messages through police officials that he or Chief Secretary would be available, around such and such time, to make people await and ultimately either disappear or conveys non-availability. Yesterday too, it was the same experience and we too, didn't beg," said NBA in a statement.

According to NBA the three-day agitation was an action to warn the governments against closure of Sardar Sarovar Dam gates and flooding of densely populated villages as well as suppressing the Justice Jha Commission Report on massive corruption in Rehabilitation.

Bhopal Action ended after Bhagirath Dhankar from Village Chikalda, Kamla Yadav, Sanobar B. Mansoori, and Khemabai, Jobat Dam affected declared the future action plan and determination to fight.

They vowed to take a national tour in June to expose the undemocratic, unjust ways of Shivraj government, deliberate concealment of Report on corruption and Fake affidavits filed before the apex court.

They also declared that unjustly imposed deluge would be challenged and faced through intensified 'satyagraha' this year.
