Guwahati: Arunachal Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister, Chowna Mein said that there is need to welcome the potential private power developers to harness the vast hydropower potential of the State as it will help to enhance economy of the State and generate employment opportunity for the local youths.

These Hydro-power projects, once developed will make our State self-sufficiency in power as the Power Developers will share free power of 5-10% with the State Government and 1% for local area development. More power will further create avenues for establishment of industry and food processing units for the local entrepreneurs.

He said this while chairing over two important meetings separately, regarding the construction of 23 MW Keyi Hydeo-Electric Project at Keyi river under Pistana Circle of Lower Subansiri District and the construction of 14.5 MW Pareng Hydro-Electric Project under Sagalee Sub-Division in Papumpare District along with all the stake holders.

While assuring to look into the grievances of the project affected people of the two Hydro-Electric Projects, he said that there is shortage of power in the State despite having so much of potential. He informed that the State’s Hydro-power Development Policy is one of the best in the country as it has incorporated the best elements found in the other States and said that there is no scope of denying the people’s rights.

He also asked the private power developers to maintain transparency while implementing the projects and win the confidence of the local people for smooth implementation of the projects. Two committees were formed to look into the grievances of project affected people and to resolve the issues.
