The Northlines - - KASHMIR - NL COR­RE­SPON­DENT

CPI (M) has de­scribed the state­ment of Power Min­is­ter 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 PDPBJP 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," he said, in a state­ment is­sued to KNS. Tarigami said the ex­ploita­tion of water re­sources of the state by NHPC ap­pears not to be for the ben­e­fit of peo­ple of the state. Tarigami said 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. He said the 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.
