Agreeing to hear the plight of the landless victims of the Sardar Sarovar Project in detail, the Supreme Court observed that giving cash instead of land to farmers who lost their fertile lands to the mega dam project is “tentatively” not acceptable.
Appearing for the Narmada Bachao Andolan, Mr. Parikh said the farmers are left with neither land nor livelihood despite there being binding orders from the Supreme Court upholding their right to land.
