The story behind #stopadanisavechennai

stop adani

A small city in karnataka, kattupalli kuppam is going inside the red zone area because of the reason that Adani is going for a mega expansion of the kattupalli port which is in Chennai, announced by the Marine Infrastructure Developer Pvt. Ltd. Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) has given information that the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) report is completed and will be submitted to the board super soon. 

But the proposal is somehow proving to be harmful for the local residents of the kattupalli kuppam area because if any further incident takes place after the Vizag gas leak or blast at Neyveli will wipe out the whole population of the village. 

Another reason for people raging over the project is that this might bring storms and sea water into the areas where these people live because the project covers over 2,00- acres of water bodies and this water would damage sand dunes of the island further entering the villages where people live. The proposed are is surrounded by 

Pulicat lake- North

Ennore creek- South

Buckingham canal- West

And these are all ecologically sensitive areas designated by CRZ-1. 

Women in these areas do subsistence fishing everyday and this is also the source of income for them but once the port proposal is accepted 6 important fishing grounds will be completely damaged taking away the livelihood of fisherfolks there and specially women.

The Ennore estuary and the surrounding watershed areas are of ecological importance to the people there and people of Chennai will face huge losses in the future due to natural calamities if such natural defenses are destroyed.  Water is best when it flows naturally whenever Indians have tried to change the water flow, it is obvious to face the reply that the environment gives us.
