The CEC committee, headed by member-secretary Amarnatha Shetty, has recommended the apex court to revoke the permission granted
The Central Empowered Committee, constituted by the Supreme Court, in its report has stated that it "does not find any justification for undertaking a project (doubling of the railway line between Tinaighat-Castlerock in Karnataka and Kulem in Goa) which will destroy the fragile eco-system of the Western Ghats".
The CEC had examined the feasibility of three linear infrastructure projects - doubling of the railway line between Karnataka and Goa, Goa-Tamnar transmission project of laying electric lines and four-laning
Those Lights looks like " something Under Fire '
Not only bus there are also other lobbies to halt especially with foreign fundings.
CEC supports Highway projects but oppose Railways these guys are bunch of idiots. Road transport is way more polluting the environment than Railways.
There are lots of lobbies in entire India who want India to remain underdeveloped so they use environmental excuses for stalling development of the nation.
Few more example are Ubl-Ankl, Tlgp-Hna rail line, etc.
Amidst massive protests in Goa against the doubling of a railway track in the Western Ghats, the Indian government on Wednesday announced that it was going ahead with the project. Taking to Twitter, Union Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Prakash Javadekar announced the National Board for Wildlife’s (NBWL) approval to the Tinaighat-Castlerock-Caranzol railway doubling project proposed by South Western Railways (SWR). Activists had earlier said that the project would result in several trees being felled and disturb the habitat in the ghats.
“Happy to inform that in its 60th meeting, NBWL has recommended the proposal for Tinaighat-Castlerock-Caranzol railway doubling of South Western Railways, Karnataka with certain mitigation measures as advised by the Wildlife Institute of India in Dehradun,” Javadekar said.
🤔🤔yeh Goa walo ka North east ke tarah koi student union hai kya ?
mat banne do Railway line !!!
phir accident hoga phir mat bolna ki desh mein single line kyu hai 😆
When they are ready to go ahead with new Hubballi - Ankola line, how can they stop doubling here.
No student union ek faltu sa group hai Revolutionary Goans bolke who are aspiring to enter Goan poltics. They oppose all development projects including construction of an IIT.
You should see how narrow the Goa Belagavi highway is government has project to widen the roads even that is opposed. There are some strong external forces at play here too which are fuelling the protests.
