House asks govt to end Subansiri deadlock- TNN
GUWAHATI: The state assembly on Thursday unanimously demanded that the state government facilitate the completion of NHPC’s 2,000-MW Subansiri Lower Hydel Project, which is located in Arunachal Pradesh but has been stalled by Assam-based anti-dam protest groups since 2011.
“The project should be completed soon for the development of Assam. So, talk to the people of Assam and the groups and take them into confidence,” speaker Hitendra Nath Goswami said.
The unanimous demand from the house came after BJP MLA Debananda Hazarika raised the issue.
“It is good to see that all members are unanimous. This is an important issue and has public interest involved in it. The matter should be solved immediately. Without power, industrialisation is not possible. I hope the government will take the matter ahead from here,” the speaker added.
