Mahanadi Flood Update: Why politicians love big dams?
If you mismanage the dam and create more flood devastation, you can market for another dam. That seems to be the message of our corrupt politician-bureaucrat nexus who see a large dam as an opportunity to earn fortunes for themselves and their coterie. Common people can die and suffer again and again.
The fact remains, large dams cause more floods and huge devastation. Solution lies in decentralised management of rain water, not in these centralised systems of corruption.
