On the banks of the Narmada River, at the Rajghat, protests have reignited decade old issue of rehabilitation for those affected by Gujarat's Sardar Sarovar dam. From Saturday, hundreds of people along with social activists including Narmada Bachao Andolan leader Medha Patkar started an indefinite protest against the closing of the dam's sluice gate and filling it to full reserve capacity which will raise the height of the dam from existing 122 metres to 139 metres. Thousands of families fear that because of this, their homes and belongings may be washed away.
