Illegal check dams in Vagamon raise threat to life

Kumily: One of the biggest check dams in Vagamon has been built in a plantation owned by MMJ Plantations, one of the biggest names in the sector. Boating also is held in the dam in violation of all the rules. A few years ago, the then irrigation minister PJ Joseph had announced in the Assembly that all illegal dams here would be demolished, but to no avail. Here, a check dam has been built by disrupting a stream flowing to the Idukki reservoir. More than 50 families live in the area and they fear for their safety.
