With 784 dams looming over Arunachal Pradesh, the government of India wants to make this land of ours the “Dam Pradesh” of India. We, the people of Arunachal will be the worst sufferers of this damned ‘Dam Pradesh’ in the 21st century.
The quality of construction is also a matter of concern because of the rampant corruption in India. These projects will help the industrialists, ministers, contractors, engineers and bureaucrats rich by millions and billions.
The security factor after completion of these projects will always be doubtful. If there is any Indo-China war in the future, the Chinese would first attack the dams. Once dams are attacked, the Indian army wouldn’t be able to do anything.
