Move to resist turbine-laden barges

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 10 � The All Assam Students' Union (AASU) is determined to resist the barges that are laden with the turbines of the Lower Subansiri Hydroelectric Power Project (LSHEP). The barges are on a forward move to Gerukamukh site of the LSHEP.

Likewise, the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) is also gearing up its organisation and trying to mobilize the people for offering resistance to the Gerukamukh-bound move of the turbines.

The State unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) also has warned that it would apply all its forces to resist the onward move of the turbine-laden barges towards the LSHEP project site. It also stated in a statement that for the

consequences of the resistance struggle the State Government will only be responsible.

Meanwhile, voluntary organisation Save Guwahati Build Guwahati (SGBG) has reiterated its appeal to the Chief Minister to settle the discord on the issue through amicable discussion with the organisations, which have been spearheading the agitations on the issue.

The members of the AASU today staged demonstration at the Jogighopa ferry station in protest against the attempt of the National Hydroelectric Power Corporation (NHPC) and the Government to bring back the turbines from Dhubri to Gerukamukh site of the LSHEP.

The members of the KMSS resorted to National Highway and railway blockade at different parts of the State. Its members also staged demonstration at Jogighopa to frustrate the probable bid to carry the turbines by road from Jogighopa, said a KMSS press release.

Its members have also been camping at the Pandughat since the wee hours today. The members of the KMSS also took out a procession from Panbazar area of the city in a bid to gherao the city office of the ABC India Ltd, the transport company which is carrying the turbines to Gerukamukh.

The KMSS protestors were later confined on the bank of the Dighalipukhuri and there the ABC India Ltd's officer on special duty B K Das assured the KMSS members around 4 pm that the vehicles his company deployed to carry the turbines from Jogighopa would be taken back by today itself.

The KMSS said in its statement that at several places its activists are blocking the National Highways and railways. At Jamuguri Rail Station, the police opened fire on the protestors and one Moon Medhi sustained bullet injuries in his left leg. Several others sustained injuries as a result of the police actions to disperse the protestors, said the KMSS and it condemned the police actions as barbaric.
