Sonbhadra dam, four decades later: Where fears return in a flood
Kanhar Irrigation Project was dormant for nearly 40 years before Uttar Pradesh govt set about reviving it. This has led to violent protests by villagers it will displace, police firing and opposition from two states. From Sonbhadra in UP and Jhara in Chhattisgarh, Maulshree Seth reports. Akloo Parhiya was 10 years old in 1976 when N D Tiwari, Uttar Pradesh’s then CM, laid the foundation stone for the Kanhar Irrigation Project at the junction of three states. Last month, Parhiya was injured while leading a violent protest against displacement by the same project, work on which has suddenly picked up after nearly four decades of stagnancy. “It is difficult to trust a government that betrayed our forefathers four decades ago and now wants us to move to a 150 sq m plot with a Rs 2 lakh cheque (the first instalment of relief),” says the tribal leader, now 48.
A villager of Sundari in UP, he is now in Chhattisgarh’s Jhara village, his wife’s home, following his treatment for injury, paid for by the UP government. Both villages will be among those inundated by the project, which is on the border of three Naxal-hit districts, Sonbhadra (UP), Balrampur (Chhattisgarh) and Garhwa (Jharkhand). Water from its dams will submerge 4,077 hectares, much of it forest land, and villagers are demanding alternative forest land rather than the plot allotted by the UP government. The protests have ceased for now for fear of police action. They had been peaceful until the violence of April 14 leading to police firing. The agitation had begun last December following efforts to revive the dormant project.
