DIMORIA, Oct 30: The people of Teteliguri vehemently opposed the move on the part of the State Power Department to draw a 132-KV power line from Baghjap in Morigaon to Samata in Sopur.

The people of the area vented their opposition at the hearing held in this connection at Teteliguri LP School here. The hearing was conducted by Powergrid. The local people say that they will have to oppose the move tooth and il.

Kamal Das, who attended the hearing today, said: "In 2012 the people of the area did oppose the line erected by Powergrid through the Bomani Beel. This time around, Powergrid wants to erect a line from Baghjap to Samata in Sopur through cultivable lands. How come the people of the locality accept it? We the local people oppose it vehemently. Why is Powergrid trying to take this line through arable lands, leaving the hills aside? We won't let this happen."
