IAC terms action against Jal Satyagraha as inhuman



Bhopal: India Against Corruption (IAC) member Manish Sisodia on Thursday described as "inhuman" the Madhya Pradesh government's action against the protesters yesterday at Khardana in the state.

"The action against the protesters who were standing in water for so many days was harsh and inhuman, and the government must clarify whether it is working for private companies or the people," Sisodia told reporters here.

Madhya Pradesh government yesterday forcibly removed a large number of protesters including women from Khardana, who were agitating against raising of water level of the Indira Sagar dam which has submerged the land in surrounding villages.

The villagers were demanding land in lieu of land, and reduction in water level till rehabilitation was completed.
