Alibag, Jan 29 (PTI) Villagers in the vicinity of a proposed medium-size dam in Alibag taluka of Raigad district have given their 'conditional consent' for its construction, a senior official said on Friday.

The dam, proposed to come up in Khairwadi in Jambhulwadi, some 25 kilometres away from Alibag town, has been pending since 1972, the official said.

Alibag deputy collector Sharad Powar said the meeting of villagers and officials took place on Thursday.

'Villagers have not opposed the construction of the dam. They have given conditional consent. The main issue is rehabilitation of those who will be displaced. A second meeting will be held on February 24,' Powar informed. PTI COR BNM BNM
