The Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, is slated to visit Gujarat to participate in the Vibrant Gujarat Summit. He is also expected to inaugurate a solar power project on the canal of the Sardar Sarovar Project.
Many public spirited individuals, activists and organizations have written to the Secretary General, conveying their concern over this, as thousands of families of indigenous origin, farmers, fisher people etc. who are facing the threat of ouster by the Project are not being ensured justice, despite stringent laws for rehabilitation and judicial directions.
The oustees have once again knocked the doors of the Supreme Court of India and it is urged that the UNSG and the world body will show all sensitivity to the legitimate struggles of lakhs of oustees displaced by the SSP and cascade of dams and canals on Narmada,fighting for basic human rights and fundamental freedoms, upheld by the UN.
Please find the letter to the UN Secy. Genl. Kindly cover / report about the same in your esteemed media group and circulate widely on various online fora.
With sincere regards,
