GOLAGHAT: The activists of Assam Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) Golaghat District Committee staged a three-hour sit-in near the Deputy Commissioner’s office on Monday demanding that the construction of Lower Subansiri Hydro-electric Project should be stopped. The activists shouted various slogans against the Narendra Modi-led Central Government as well as the Sarbananda Sonowal-led State Government.
Taking part in the protest, AJYCP central committee joint secretary Jitul Rajkhowa strongly opposed the construction of big dams and slammed the Narendra Modi-led BJP government. He said that the Lower Subansiri Hydro-Electric Project would have a dangerous impact on the people living in the downstream area.
Further, he said that AJYCP had been demanding a permanent solution to the flood problem in Assam since 1978. “The Government of India considers the resources of Assam as national resource, but the flood problem of Assam is not considered a national problem,” said Jitul Rajkhowa.
