Refusal by GOI to transfer Power Projects from NHPC to the State quite disappointing: Tarigami

Srinagar, October 12, (Scoop News)-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.

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.

A highly empowered committee by the central government among other things recommended the transfer of few power projects from NHPC to the Jammu and Kashmir State but it is ironical that the same has been shelved, which is much unreasonable and share injustice with this energy deficit state.

PDP has time and again advocated for return of these projects to the state and making it an essential component of agenda of alliance and even claiming to fulfill the same. Now the statement of the Power Minister has put a big question mark on PDP and agenda of alliance itself.
