Why concerned citizens of Narmada Valley and across India are challenging the decision to close the gates of the Sardar Sarovar Dam?

BECAUSE  even today, about 40,000 families live in the submergence area  of the Sardar Sarovar Dam - thousands of farmers and tribals  are being denied their legal right to cultivable land based rehabilitation, thousands of landless workers, fisher people, potters, small traders, are being deprived of their livelihood without rehabilitation and well-settled flourishing villages are being submerged.
