ITANAGAR, Nov 30: Arunachal Pradesh MP Takam Sanjoy today pleaded the Centre to immediately intervene into the ‘impasse’ over the Lower Subansiri dam issue and help crack the issue once for one and all.
The construction work of the 2000 MW Subansiri Lower Hydroelectric Project, located at Gerukamukh along Assam-Arunachal border, has come to a standstill since December 2011 in the wake of a series of agitation, strikes by KMSS, AASU and other local organizations in Assam. Moreover, the executing agency, NHPC, is unable to transport the construction materials such as turbines and other equipments to the project site at Gerukamukh because of the strike by the agitating groups, which had put a stumbling block in carrying the equipments to the site.
Seeking to find a permanent solution to the imbroglio, the Lok Sabha MP has, in this regard, written separately to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Minister of State (independent charge) for Power Jyotiraditya Madhavrao Scindia, requesting them “to kindly intervene in the matter so that the construction of the 2000MW Subansiri Lower Project could be started without further delay, which (according to Sanjoy) will pave the way for the expeditious development of hydropower in Arunachal Pradesh”.
Stating that “this issue can be resolved by creating a conducive atmosphere for a dialogue with the agitating organizations”, he requested the Centre to constitute a Committee consisting of representatives from Arunachal Pradesh govt, Assam govt, NHPC and the Joint Secretary of Power Ministry which is to be headed by Union Minister of State or an MP of the region so that a permanent solution to the problem could be arrived at.
