Sonowal gets assurance from Goel

The Centre will resume the Lower Subansiri Hydroelectric Project only after consultations with the people of Assam.

This was what Union minister of state for power Piyush Goel told Union Minister of State for Skill Development, Entrepreneurship, Youth Affairs and Sports  Subanshiri Sarbanda Sonowal.

No Construction will be undertaken till the matter is sorted out. Goyal  informed it to Sonowal when the state BJP president met in New Delhi on Saturday and apprised him of the concern of the people of Assam relating to the Subansiri Hydroelectric project.

During their discussion, Goyal told Sonowal that a meeting of various stake holders will be called shortly to discuss their concerns along with experts in this field.
