Lakhimpur: A farmers` organisation has
opposed the proposed construction of big dams in Arunachal
Pradesh claiming that it will have adverse impact in Assam.

Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) General Secretary
Akhil Gogoi told reporters here that they would oppose the
construction 132 mega dams in the state and urged the
opposition to press for a resolution in the state assembly
against it.

While urging the state government to stall the
construction of the big dams, Gogoi demanded that three hydro

be dropped.

On the micro-power projects, Gogoi said the power
generated should be used in the north eastern region only.
