Construction of Mapithel Dam have claimed lives of more than 16 people

30th April 2019



Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) would like to appeal the Government to Decommissioned Mapithel Dam which was constructed without proper Social Impact Assessment, Environment Impact Assessment and Cumulative Impact Assessment.

And condemn the Chief Minister of Manipur for his alleged statement on the functioning of the sub-standard boat being operated by the villagers to earn their livelihood after the entire area have been submerged by the Mapithel Dam snatching all the possible livelihood which use to be dependent by the villagers before the construction of dam.

The statement of the Chief Minister clearly indicates the irresponsibility as being a head of the state by blaming the villagers who are deprived of their rights due to the construction of the Mapithel Dam.

If the government of Manipur was responsible enough for its citizen than the construction of Mapithel Dam wouldn’t have been constructed keeping in mind of the destruction which is being caused including destruction of forest, agricultural field, displacement, cultural integrity, etc and also losing lives of more than 16 people at the huge reservoir of Mapithel Dam since its blocking of Thoubal river.

We regret to learn that 3 people are still missing who went for boating at Mapithel Dam on the 28th of April, 2019. We further would like to inform the tourist to realize that the beauty of Mapithel Dam is an artificial after the submergence of hundreds of house, schools, churches, cemetery, forest, paddy field, etc, therefore, enjoying the artificial beauty would be a curse and may cause several lives in the near future if the Mapithel Dam is not decommissioned and restore the destroyed areas and the villages.

Lastly, we appreciate the government for its prompt response in the recent incident which was never done when few lives have been claimed earlier in these couple of years at Mapithel Dam.
