It has become a do-or-die battle for villagers in the areas around Kakrapalli village in the Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh where East Coast Energy’s thermal power project is coming up. They claim consent for setting up the project was manufactured by misleading the villagers. The state government says `due process’ was followed.
