Gorakhpur Nuclear Project: Farmers Rise to Protest Against Usurping Irrigation Water

As per the original Bhakra water sharing agreement of 1959 between Punjab and Rajasthan water is meant only for irrigation and hydel power generation. Therefore diverting a huge quantity of 320 cusecs, meant to irrigate over 130,000 acres (allocation of 2.25 cusecs per 1000 acre) for a nuclear power plant is illegal and violative of Right to life under Article 21 of the Constitution.
