Hurldes to hydel projects on Ganga

The Union government’s bid to stream-roll 70 hydel projects on river Ganga in Uttarakhand received a setback on March 19 with independent experts not agreeing to a draft report seeking approval to most of these projects.

The twin pressure of former IIT professor GD Aggarwal sitting on a protest outside the Planning Commission, where an inter-ministerial group (IMG) met, and agitated independent members forced the committee headed by plan panel member BK Chaturvedi to revise its draft report.

There was lot of opposition on suggested environment flow for river Ganga and its tributaries and go ahead to 70 hydel projects in which some sort of work has started, sadi said one of the independent members. Rajender Singh, another independent member said, the draft IMG report was not acceptable as it aims to ensure construction of dams on the river instead of ensuring sound environmental flow.
