Demand was never about hike in compensation: Jaitapur activists – Indian Express

“Some individual members of JSS and others met the industries minister recently and submitted a letter saying they are willing to accept the Jaitapur project. We wish to clarify that JSS is not party to this decision. Gavankar did not consult us before meeting Rane. We have no idea why he has taken this stand and under whose pressure. The mass opposition to the project will continue on various fronts with more rigour in the coming days, unaffected by this development. From farmers to fishermen, everyone is opposed to the project and we have the backing of Shiv Sena,” said Shyamsundar Narvekar, JSS secretary.

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email:
