HASSAN: Chief convener of Cauvery Sene K.A. Ravi Chengappa said in a press release here on Sunday that the sene, which was fighting for protection of environment in Kodagu, would join hands with Malnad Janapara Horata Samiti in opposing the Gundia hydel power project. He termed the day on which the foundation stone for the power project was laid as “black day”.

The sene criticised the Chief Minister for launching work on the project on Saturday under tight security and termed the arrest of the samiti members as “undemocratic”. — Staff Correspondent
