Tawde demands rehabilitation affected by dam project
Thane: Leader of Opposition in Maharashtra Legislative Council, Vinod Tawde has said the Lendhi Dam being constructed in the tribal taluka of Jawhar will not be allowed to be completed unless the state government meets the demands of those affected by the project.
While touring the tribal talukas of the district last evening, Tawde said he would take up the issue on priority during the next session of the legislature.
The work on the dam located at Hiradpada began three years back and is nearing completion.

While meeting the affected people, Tawde said he would not allow the pending work on the dam till the project affected are rehabilitated and given proper compensation.
