DHEMAJI: The anti-dam movement in Assam received a shot in the arm when Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) leader Medha Patkar on Thursday said that construction of big dams in the region must be stopped “at any cost”.

The firebrand activist was addressing a public rally at Sauldhuaghat in Lakhimpur district. The rally was organized by six organizations, including the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS), TMPK, AJYCP and AAMSU (R).
