Many organisations and NGOs have started agitations, rallies, campaigns and hunger strikes in protest.


Kerala is in protest mode, the epicentre being Upputhara Chappath near the dam site, where activists are on hunger strike for the past four days.any leaders have visited to the dam site to assess the situation.


The Kerala High Court yesterday urged the state government to seriously consider precautions to ensure the safety of the people near the dam. By Juhan Samuel (ANI)
