The press release states that coinciding with the 'International Day of Actions against Dams, and for Rivers, Water and Life' on March 14th, the Idu Mishmi Cultural and Literary Society (IMCLS) and All Idu Mishmi Students' Union (AIMSU) demands declaration of Dibang Valley as Ecologically Sensitive Zone according to the provision under Section 3 of the Environment Protection Act, 1986 similar to Aravalli Hills where mining is banned; and in line with that they have demanded banning of construction of Mega Projects such as Dams in the region and to declare Dibang Valley as 'No Dam Zone'.
In an open letter to Prime Minister (reproduced below) they have asked the government to stop the cruel circus of development in the name of national interest of which they have little understanding and which do not evoke interests in them considering the impact it would have on the Idu Mishmi community.
