Opposition flays Sikkim CM over hydropower projects

GANGTOK, March 12: The Sikkim Himali Rajya Parishad (SHRP) along with other anti-SDF parties supported the indefinite hunger strike by the affected citizens of Teesta against power projects coming up in Dzongu. The strike entered its third day today.
The Opposition condemned chief minister Mr Pawan Chamling's statement that he was not open to discussion on the hydropower projects coming up in Dzongu. “The state government is ignoring public interest and the hunger strikers,” alleged SHRP spokesperson Mr Biraj Adhikary.
“The state government has not formed any review committee as assured on the matter. It is cheating the Lepchas,” alleged Mr Thukchuk Lachungpa a SHRP leader.
Yesterday Mr Chamling announced the ban of six projects in Dzongu in North Sikkim except the Panang hydro project. But he refused to disclose the reason behind theclosure. The chief minister, however, had also announced the start of several stages of the NHPC project.
SHRP leaders alleged that the chief minister was vacillating. “He keeps changing his statements, which has made him unstable,” Mr Adhikari alleged. 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)
