Categorical refusal by GoI to transfer Power Projects from NHPC to State quite disappointing: Tarigami

Srinagar: CPI (M) has described the statement of Power Minsiter R.K Singh regarding categorical refusal of Power Projects from NHPC to state highly disturbing and disappointing. The promises made and assurances given by the leadership of PDP-BJP who are running the alliance government in the state have proved mere hoax.

“The off repeated noises made by the leadership of these parties regarding initiation of dialogue and return of power projects have only proved to be a big joke. It appears to be in total contravention to the recommendations of the Rangarajan Committee and the commitment made by the present dispensation at the time of power sharing agreement,” read a statement of Tarigami.

Exploitation of water resources of the state by NHPC appears not to be for the benefit of people of the state. Instead of extending assistance for hydro electric projects to the state the centre is showing a callous approach to empower and make J&K resourceful and self reliant.
