Amaravati clears NGT hurdle 17.11.2017 Deccan Herald - National
Clearing the final hurdle for construction of Andhra Pradeshs new capital Amaravati, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday quashed objections raised by environmental activists. The NGT directed the government to set up an implementation committee and a supervisory committee. The supervisory committee will closely monitor adherence to the NGTs guidelines. The green body delivered its judgment in favour of the state government in response to a petition filed by former bureaucrat E A S Sarma and a few environmentalists opposing the destruction of lush green fields and flora and fauna on the banks of the river. Activists filed petitions before the NGT in 2015 challenging the proposal to build Amaravati. They challenged the conditional clearances given by the environment ministry.

The green body examined about 10,000 pages of documents in favour and against the proposed ...

About 2,300 odd natives of two backward villages in Nandod constituency of Narmada district are eagerly waiting for the elections to get over. Immediately after exercising their electoral right on December 9, about 35 to 40% men and women of these two villages will migrate to Bharuch and Ankleshwar join work in the construction sector and chemical factories. Their only hope, return home with some savings on Holi. The unfortunate ones will head to nearby Rajpipla to work as labourers in the farms of affluent Patidars. A handful of the fortunate ones will harvest crops of Tuvar and Peanuts, fetching them some respite. "We should be moving now as there is nothing to do here. The farms have dried up. There is no facility to irrigate except rains. But, elections ensure good food and some other benefits for four to five days," says Suresh Dalsukh Vasava, a marginal farmer in Palsi. However, there are many who stay back in the village to cast their vote. Last Sunday, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani had ...
