|Development of alternatives:||1. The implementing agencies, State as well as non-State actors should immediately rethink, implement moratorium and withdraw from pursuing these destructive projects and save our land and people from irreparable destruction. The State as well as non-State actors ought to know that our land, rivers and forests are the backbone of our existence and survival. Our citizenship and democratic rights that are integrally embedded with our land, forests and rivers must be safeguarded and protected for all time to come.|
2. The haves and influential coterie from Mizoram and Manipur should stop their selfish quest for securing contract job and compensation by negating the ancestral dwellers.
3.There should be Constitutional Safeguards for securing and developing our land, our people, our rights and our future .
|Do you consider this an environmental justice success? Was environmental justice served?:||Not Sure|
|Briefly explain:||The proposed projects failed to be transparent in all its planning process. All information’s about these dams that, otherwise, are supposed to link, inform and educate the affected people did not reach them. Information has become a costly property in the hands of the few powerful groups who will never be affected by the dam, but who sought monetary compensation, contract job and other benefits from the project. The entire covert practice is a negation of the Fundamental Rights of the marginalized tribals who will be affected by these projects.|
According to protestors, Mizoram requires only 100-160 MW for its own consumption, the imposition of these projects in this small state clearly points to the extermination of the land and people in the name of development. Moreover, these projects are without their knowledge.
The major share of compensation of Tuirial Multipurpose Hydro Electric Project were bagged by the rich, influential and powerful lots from Mizoram’s Aizawl; people who were never affected by these projects .
