Hirakud: Power Generation Stopped to divert water to industries.
- Dear Friends/Co-sailors,Greetings from Water Initiatives Odisha (WIO)!First time in the 56 years of history, the Hirakud Dam authorities have stopped power generation. This is to divert water to industries.We at WIO have termed this act of the authorities as illegal and have asked them to immediately stop water supply to industries to save the dam, river's ecology and irrigation from suffering.Please see links to coverage of the news in some news portals.http://www.eindiadiary.com/content/water-rights-activist-ranjan-panda-faults-odisha-govt-suppplying-water-hirakud-reservoir-indhttp://www.orissabarta.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=13584:wio-pr-stopping-power-generation-at-hirakud-is-illegal&catid=35:top-storiesLook forward to your support in this issue.Thanks and regards,Ranjan---
