thanks for bringing this issue to our attention Carl! we ought to start a worldwide petition against so-called development as opposed to conservation for future generations. don't know what the authorities are thinking in this respect. research and and sustainable livelihood for the poor from this river ought to be foremost on these so-called elected intelligent minds who spearheaded this modern infrastructures for the good of the country.

We need to keep this awesome river clean and untouched for the people and their culture, not to mention the wildlife.
