“Till the time water level comes down to 189 and as per court orders, we get the 5 acre land. And labourers get Rs. 2.5 lakh. Till that time even if we die, we will sit here,” said one of the 51 protestors at Madhya Pradesh’s Ghogal village, who have been sitting in water for the past 13 days.
“In the water, fishes and crabs are biting us, our skin is affected and it is raining also,” said a protestor.
However, despite the deteriorating health of the protestors, the government has so far offered no medical help. No one from the local administration has visited the spot of the protest.
The water of the Omkareshwar Dam has already risen to 190.5 meters and its effects can been seen in Ghogal, Kaamankheda and 28 other villages, where crops have been damaged.
