Indians fear dam plan could destroy hundreds of villages

A plan by the Indian government to increase the size of a dam has led to protests. Locals say raising the Sardar Sarovar dam on the Narmada river in Gujarat will wipe out hundreds of villages across four states and could cause the deaths of hundreds who refuse to move.

The plan to raise the dam has been around for decades, but with increased power demands, the government felt this was the time to act.

An appeal to India’s Supreme Court to stay an eviction order has failed and now thousands of families are faced with being forcibly moved from their homes.

Al Jazeera’s Alan Fisher explains.
