The Centre's nod to the hydrocarbon extraction programme in Neduvasal in Tamil Nadu has led to massive protests. Drought hit farmers, college students and even scientists have taken to the roads of this town in the Cauvery basin, to express their displeasure over the project. The agitators, all alleging that if the project were to take off, it could lead to an ecological disaster in the area.

The reasons for protest offered by geologists, experts and residents of Neduvasal vary from - displacement of farmers and occupation of cultivable land to saline water intrusion in the ground water system.

The gas pipelines are laid at a depth of more than 5.5 feet and are around 3 feet wide. Even though the volume sounds small the area acquired runs through the farmlands and any damages and leakages to the pipelines will result in severe loss to the farmers.

The farmers also accused that the presence of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) plants has already affected nearly 10,000 acres of farmlands. The ONGC is extracting oil from several villages in the region. Since the plants are in the middle of farmlands, the farmers are unable to carry out agricultural work.

The country’s green court has issued an interim stay on the Neutrino Observatory project, which was being planned in Theni district, Tamil Nadu. It has cited that this could cause harm to the environment.

The excavation and blasts needed to bore the tunnel in the mountains will endanger the biodiversity of the Western Ghats.   Some of the concerns voiced range from radiation, structural damage to the mountain to emission of hazardous chemicals.

So to avoid all these calamities it's much needed to stop these projects immediately.. We people in TamilNadu are not against new project. We are only saying No new projects in fertile lands. Rather u can do these projects in deserts areas like Sahara which is more spacious and non-fertile. 

If all the land was destroyed then there will be no land to cultivate and there will be no food to eat and the same thing happened in Somalia will happen to TamilNadu. 

It's not just the problem of a single state TamilNadu. It's the problem of whole country cause many states involved in trade with TamilNadu they will also get suffer ! 

So in need of all your support !
