Guwahati: 14 different groups from Assam have protested against the Shubansiri Lower Hydro Electric Project due to serious safety concerns causing destruction and damage to the ecology and the livelihood of the riparian people by the 4 hour generation format of the dam, today submitted a memorandum to the Honorable Prime Minister Of India through the Governor of Assam and Nagaland.
But, when we compare the scenario of destruction, by the dams of Arunachal specially Lohit lower, Dibang Lower, Siang Lower of the Brahmaputra Majuli, Kaziranga the Shubansiri destruction playes in to insignificance. These dams will destroy Brahmaputra and its valleys ecologically, environmentally, socially and culturally. Bor Lohit will be dead inevitably. When water of the Lohit, Dibang and Siang is held up in the lower dams for 20 hours and all the water will be released in 4 hours by running all the turbines as a result Brahmaputra will dry up in the during the winter months for 20 hours and in the evening a Tsunami will descend sweeping away everything in its path. The river will die ecologically Dibru Sokhuwa’s biosphere resume, Majuli Kariranga will be destroyed. When this absolute project will be completed in the next decade, the above scenario will manifest by itself suddenly a day will come when irreversible will conquer. Assam’s Brahmaputra valley and Arunachal will be destroyed, while Siang will be converted in to 230 Km of reservoir and 120km of tunnel. In the Siang Valley Arunachalis will held on their ‘head’ these huge reservoir in a most fragile and highly seismic region of Lohit will be destroyed.
