On 2nd May, 2011 thousands of activists of Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti, Assam have protested against the attempt made by NHPC to transport heavy equipments, turbines included, to the construction site of Lower Subansiri Hydro Power Project. The NHPC has used the national waterway of Brahmaputra to carry these large equipments to central Assam, the Biswanath Port and from there by road transport to Gerukamukh. KMSS activists protested this and forced the road carriers to return back. It has now demanded the Assam government to sent back the ships and threatened further protest is this is not done immediately. The KMSS also criticizes the GOI for failing to address the issues raised by the agitating people.
