The Uttarakhand Kranti Dal (UKD) has opposed the proposed Pancheshwar dam in Pithoragarh district.
UKD central working committee member Kashi Singh Airy, while addressing a press conference here today, said the party was not in favour of big dams and would launch a widespread agitation in protest against the move.
“While other countries are mulling dismantling big dams, the Uttarakhand Government is planning to construct a new one in the ecologically fragile Kumaon hills”, he said.
He threatened to launch an agitation if the government went ahead with the project.
