By digging borewells, Infosys was depriving farmers of their fertile lands and of drinking water, it was stated. The local people already had a drinking water shortage in summer and had to hire water carriers to supplement their needs.
The DC has assured them of taking suitable action in this connection. However, the TRV warned the authorities that if Infosys did not stop its anti-people activities in the name of widening its own sphere of business, steps will be taken on a long term, by Dharna and other means.
Several activists of TRV and people’s representatives of Mudipu were in the delegation that met the DC recently.
