Mangaluru, Mar 20, 2015: A Kodapana Chaluvali or an Empty Pot Protest was organised by the Sahyadri Samrakshana Sanchaya in the city on March 20, Friday opposing the implementation of the controversial Yettinahole Project. The Sanchaya has been spearheading the agitation against the project since the past few years.
Addressing the protestors, Dinesh Holla, eminent artist and leader of the Sanchaya said it was condemnable on the part of the government to go ahead with the project despite being aware of its drastic consequences and despite knowing that it would affect the ecologically sensitive Western Ghats.
The protestors informed that a similar agitation will be held in front of the DC office on March 22 on the occasion of World Water Day.
The Sanchaya has also warned that it would give a call for a District Bandh if the project was not withdrawn.
