Picture Tales #1: See the disastrous effects of backwater of Sardar Sarovar Dam in villages of Madhya Pradesh

Thousands of people have been evacuated from catchment areas of Sardar Sarovar Dam (SSD) in Barwani and Dhar districts in Madhya Pradesh as the Narmada river is flowing above the danger mark following heavy rains. Despite the protests of villagers the Gujarat government is not opening the gates of Sardar Sarovar Dam and with every passing minute the water level is increasing. The villagers are demanding proper rehabilitation and compensation from governments. Social activist Rehmat M shared the photographs of disaster with Grounds Tales.
