Dehradun, January 21

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.
