The affected people spearheaded by the SIFF are already opposing the proposed Hydro Electric Project and also expressed their reluctance to allow even preliminary survey and investigation. They even vehemently opposed the proposed enumeration fearing that once any preliminary assessment is allowed, the project will inevitably come up.
