The Idu Mishmi community in Arunachal Pradesh are strongly against the project. Public hearing finally held after being cancelled 14 times.

The Dibang Multipurpose Project (DMP) proposed on the Dibang river in Arunachal Pradesh by NHPC Ltd (National Hydro Power Corporation), is slated to be India’s highest dam. A concrete gravity dam that will resist the pressure of impounding water through its own weight, its capacity is 3000 megawatts (MW). The dam is a hydropower-cum-flood moderation scheme to be set up in Munli, which is situated about 43km from Roing.

Delhi was once well-planned along the course of the river Yamuna but it isn't so any more. It can reach a similar state with thoughtful and better urban planning, says Anupam Mishra.

History tells us cities were settled and abandoned several times in Delhi. But I have not come across an explanation for why the city was repeatedly established at the same site. Surely, the presence of the river Yamuna to the east of Delhi would have been a reason. The Yamuna, though is not a small river; it flows for 1,300 km. Once an old city had been abandoned, why weren’t the new cities of Delhi established upstream or downstream of this location?
