Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 4 : Large scale displacement of peasants and tribals

The Correct Answer is Large scale displacement of peasants and tribals.

 

  • The construction of huge dams are opposed due to the following reasons:
    • The construction of large dams leads to the displacement of people from that place. Hence Option 4 is Correct.
    • The construction leads to the submergence of flora and fauna.

 

  • Even if the initial cost is high, yet it is not the major reason to oppose the construction of dams.
  • Option 2 and 3 seem irrelevant for the opposition to the construction of large dams.
