25 years of Save Narmada Movement
Has Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA), one of India’s best-known peoples’ movements, run out of steam? Or is it still relevant in its new avatar as a force to reckon with? After all, the NBA has failed to achieve its primary goal of blocking big dams on Narmada, including the Sardar Sarovar Dam in Gujarat.
It has been estimated that somewhere between 25 and 50 million people were displaced since Independence without proper resettlement or rehabilitation. For more information on displacement please see http://www.im4change.org/empowerment/displacement-3279.html.
