New turn in hydel project fate

Upper Siang Deputy Remo Kamki asked a local farmer body to re-consider their ultimatum for closure of NEEPCO office at Yingkiong. Kamki asked them to refrain themselves from violent and unlawful activities against the Power developer. He said in case of any law and order problem, the Forum shall be held responsible.

The affected people spearheaded by the SIFF are already opposing the proposed Hydro Electric Project and also expressed their reluctance to allow even preliminary survey and investigation. They even vehemently opposed the proposed enumeration fearing that once any preliminary assessment is allowed, the project will inevitably come up.
