Chamling backs out from six power projects


GANGTOK, March 11: The Sikkim chief minister Mr Pawan Chamling today announced that his government would stop construction of six of the seven power projects at Dzongu in north Sikkim, which had been cleared earlier. Construction of the Panang Hydro project would, however, continue. He also announced that three units of National Hydro Power Corporation project would be commissioned soon. He made these announcements in the Sikkim Legislative Assembly today on the last day of the budget session.
The chief minister, however, refused to disclose the reason behind the government’s sudden back out from the six projects. He merely said that the generation of electricity from the proposed power project would solve the power crisis in the region. “We would also encourage Hydro-power tourism,” he added. n sns

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
