AGP opposes Big Dam

Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) president Atul Bora on Wednesday categorically opposed the construction of 2000 MW Subansiri Lower Dam.

“AGP is not against construction of small dams but the party will oppose any move to construct big dams in the region,” said Bora in Dhemaji.

However, Bora refrained himself from comment on the agreement signed between government and NHPC to implement the Subansiri Project.

It may be mentioned here that after the National Green Tribunal (NGT) upheld the technical committee that was set up by the Centre to review the fundamental of the Subansiri Lower Hydroelectric Project (SLHP), the Assam Government on August 23 inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with NHPC Limited in Guwahati for implementation of 2000 MW SLHP.
