Dholera waterlogged, reconsider Smart City project: Farmers
| Tuesday | 13th August, 2019
With Dholera region submerged in water for three days because of heavy rains in past fortnight, Gujarat Khedut Ekta Samiti, a farmers' organization, has raised question regarding the feasibility and economic viability of upcoming Dholera Smart City project, saying that if water logging is so widespread, how can a high tech city be sustained.
"This is a low lying area, which gets waterlogged during monsoon and tides.
A city can be developed only if large scale filling is conducted, which is neither possible nor economically viable.
The government is putting all its might since 2011 to develop a Smart City in Bhal area.
This area has been waterlogged for over three days now and the villages have been cut off from rest of the state.
