Maheshwar (Khargone district, M.P.):

Given the tardy pace of work under Narmada Phase III, it seems unlikely that the benefit of Narmada phase III will reach the city people this summer.

NEW DELHI: The Union Environment Ministry has issued a show-cause notice to the company building the Maheshwar dam in the Narmada Valley after hundreds of affected people marched to the Ministry here demanding rehabilitation.

According to the notice, if the company cannot explain why 80 per cent of construction is over even while rehabilitation efforts lag behind, the project could be closed.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in a letter to Union Minister of Environment and Forests Jairam Ramesh assured that there would be no let up in the efforts to complete rehabilitation and resettlement of the affected population.
