NHPC to go ahead with Gerukamukh project


The anti dam protest is set to be more intensified when NHPC on Wednesday claimed to have received support from government to go ahead in Gerukamukh project.


Talking to reporters in Dispur on Thursday, NHPC managing director ABL Srivastava said that they would not halt construction of the big dam and that they would not directly sit in talks with the protestors.


Later, power minister Pradyut Bordoloi who heads the group of ministers on the dam deadlock said that the construction would continue and that NHPC has assured the government of steps to counter the possible downstream impact of the Lower Subansiri project. Before that the NHPC officials held talks with the ministerial panel in Dispur in the morning.
