PETITION: Stop Illegal Construction of Kanhar Dam

 Kanhar Protests3

Dear all,

It is my request to please go through the following petition link, endorse and share- for helping these thousands of tribal families who are on indefinite protests in this cold since a month now to show protest against the Kanhar dam in Sonbhadra. This dam is illegal and will destroy a very rich biodiversity area of the country. Lakhs of trees will be felled, 80 villages will be submerged and will have huge impact on River Son and Ganga. Naional Green Tribunal has already issued stay order if they do not have the environment and forest clearance, but the U.P. govt is still adamant to proceed with the construction.

We need your support as a great natural heritage of the country and livelihood of a huge number of our brothers and sisters are at risk today.

Please sign the online petition to  'Stop the Illegal Construction of Kanhar Dam' which is directed to Akhilesh Yadav, CM of Uttar Pradesh; Mr. Deepak Singhal, PS-Irrigation Department, Uttar Pradesh and Mr. Prakash Javadekar, Minister of Environment, Forests and Climate Change by visiting the following link:

We will be really grateful if you can also share this link through emails, whatsApp and social media to get maximum endorsements.
