“We informed the project authorities as well as the local administration. The officials later plunged into action and got the houses vacated. We were urging project authority as well as district administration to look in to the matter and take preventive measures to avoid any danger to the residents of area”, she remarked.According to people the area was quite fragile and constant seepage of water may lead to massive landslide, which will damage the habitats of around Rella, Dahra, Khadoa, Jeeva and two other villages. So they requested the project authorities to resolve the problem of leakage before starting power generation.People alleged that the use of substandard material for the construction of tunnel was the major cause of the seepage.
