It’s the 15th day of the Jal Satyagraha at Khandwa, 90 protesting
farmers are not ready to call off what they call as their ‘final
Farmers from Ghogal Aawan, Bilawa, Bada Kailawa, Sukaya, Kamankheda
and other villages are protesting the state government’s move to
increase water-level in dams in the region that is resulting in gradual
submergence of their farm land.
They claim that over 1,000 acres of land is already submerged and 60
villages are on the verge of submergence if water-level in Omkareshwar
dam is increased further.
One of the farmers, 60-year-old Girjabai shivers as she stands
neck-deep in water. Her wrinkly palms and feet are narrating the tale of
her deteriorating health.
