Today is day 428. We go on with your love and support.
Though the Environment Impact Assesment (EIA)of Teesta Stage III, 1200MW project callously mentioned there was no major wild life presence in the project vicinity, a Serow, (Himalayan Thar)a endangered Schedule (I) animal was killed in the dam site of the project recently. Had ACT not raised the issue, it could have gone unoticed.
Similar incidences are bound to happen in future if the projects, as random as they are, are not stopped, as all the projects are in close proximity of the Kanchenjunga National Park and the Biosphere Reserve in North Sikkim, with some even being planned inside the National Park.
