“The Narmada and its 30 big dams, the Sardar Sarovar in particular, have for long been a matter of prestige for the government [even though] increasing the height will affect villages in Madhya Pradesh more than the other States.” – Lyla Bavadam in “Height of controversy” (Frontline Magazine, 19 September 2014)

“[O]ver the last three decades, successive governments in the state have pushed the Narmada dam as a lifeline for the drought-prone areas of Kachchh, Saurashtra and North Gujarat. In practice, however, these regions are given the lowest priority. They receive only the residual water after the requirements of urban areas, industries, and farmers in central Gujarat are met. […] The programmes of well-charging and check dams adopted in the past must be revived.” – Namita Waikar quoting Himanshu Thakkar of the South Asia Network on Dams, Rivers and People (2018 report titled “Gujarat’s water crisis rooted in years of misplaced priorities”) in “Counting sheep as grasslands shrink in Gujarat”
