AIZAWL, Feb 16 � Anti-corruption watchdog PRISM has urged the Mizoram Government to cancel the MoU with NEEPCO for the 210 MW Tuivai Hydro Electricity Project.

The NGO maintained that before a MoU is signed by the State Government with any party, the verification and approval of Law & Judicial department is first necessary, whereas the MoU between NEEPCO and Mizoram Government was neither verified nor approved by Law & Judicial department.

Moreover, the MoU in question was not in consonance with the Mizoram Power Policy, so the MoU was unlawful, PRISM pointed out in a press release.

NEEPCO, which is now implementing the 60 MW Tuirial Hydel Project, could not complete it in time. Besides, the Mizoram Government had way back in 2011 signed an MoU with the company for Lungreng HEP (815 MW), Chhimtuipui HEP (635 MW) and Mat HEP (76 MW), in all of which no work is seen to have been done.

Mizoram Government has between 2008 and 2012 signed MoUs with different companies for power generation, all of which have so far remained on paper.

In the MoUs that have been signed for power projects, the share of Mizoram is only 13 per cent, which is too less, PRISM said in its statement.
