Protests

The committee, which is opposing the establishment of Defence-related projects in Chitradurga, has been arguing that acres of grasslands and the lives of people dependent on the land for their livelihood would be affected.

The Centre and the State government have planned to accommodate a massive military industrial nuclear complex at Challakere in violation of rules, the committee said.
