Mangaluru: Nethravathi Rakshana Samyukta Samithi, which has been opposing the implementation of Yettinahole project, has announced its decision to launch a final struggle to prevent the project on January 26.
Samithi President Vijay Kumar Shetty said, "The state government is adamant on completing the project even after repeated appeals and the protest by the Samithi and the people of the district opposing the project. Therefore, the Samithi has decided to carry out a surgical strike on January 26 and step up the protest. No positive developments have taken up even after Chief Minister Siddaramaiah convened a meeting to discuss on the pros and cons of the project."
Keeping the details on the protest ’confidential for now’, he said, "We will take a final decision after discussing with the members. But before that, a meeting of elected representatives will be convened." He said the Principal Bench of NGT, National Green Tribunal has deferred the hearing on the project to January 20 after the Ministry of Environment and Forests sought more time to submit its report. The tribunal has asked the ministry to constitute a committee comprising its officials and representatives from the Karnataka government and petitioners and submit a report after visiting the project site. The officials are purposefully delaying the submission of the report to the tribunal, he charged.
