GUWAHATI, Feb 17 � Reiterating its demand for engaging experts in a dialogue over the feasibility or otherwise of big dams on the geologically and environmentally fragile Eastern Himalayas, the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today said there was little in the National Hydro Power Corporation�s (NHPC) assertion that could assuage the popular and justified apprehensions over the Lower Subansiri project.

"A scientific conclusion on the Lower Subansiri and other proposed big dams on the upper reaches of the Brahmaputra is highly imperative for ensuring safety to the downstream inhabitants of Assam. For this, we urge the State Government to initiate a dialogue amongst experts from the country and abroad, the committee already formed with experts of the State, and other experts of the State," the AASU said in a statement.

The AASU asserted that until such scientific deliberations are facilitated, the student body will continue with its agitational programmes along with 26 representative bodies of different ethnic communities "in the greater interest of the State and its people."
