GUWAHATI, June 17 � The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) today alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hatched a conspiracy to push Lower Assam to the brink of devastation by laying the foundation stone of the 600-MW Kholangshu Hydel Power Project in Bhutan.
In a statement here, AGP general secretary Durga Das Boro alleged that Modi had played with the anti-big dam sentiments of the State�s people during the latest Lok Sabha elections. The people of the State are not in favour of the mega dam projects and the experts of the State have also pointed to the danger potential of such projects.
The 60-MW Kurishu Hydel Power Project of Bhutan devastated a vast area of Lower Assam in 2004 and 2007. Therefore, the danger potential of the 600-MW Kholangshu Project is quite predictable, Das Boro said.
