Speaking to reporters here, Ivan said  though the project aims at constructing vented dams across west flowing rivers, so far no clear-cut report has been prepared regarding the project.

Stating  that the project which is still in proposal stage would require around Rs 2000 crores, he added that he would pressurise the authorities to prepare a report within the next five months.

Stressing the need to form an areca growers board to protect  the interests of areca growers, he said the Board should also help in promoting by-products of areca.

B H Khader, Chairman of Cashew Development Corporation,  Ibrahim Kodijal, Interim President of District Congress and others were present.
