NHPC starts ferrying turbines

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 9 � The National Hydroelectric Power Corporation (NHPC), which is executing the 2000-MW Lower Subansiri Hydroelectric Power Project (LSHEP), has started ferrying the turbines of the project to the Gerukamukh site of the power project.

The turbines were earlier taken back to Dhubri from Tezpur in the face of resistance offered by the people of the State under the banners of the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) and the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti.

KMSS general secretary Akhil Gogoi told this newspaper this evening that members of his organisation have already started rail and road blockade agitation all over the State and from tomorrow the agitation will be intensified more. The KMSS, through its agitation is demanding of the State Government immediate steps to stop the progress of the turbine-laden barges. Or else, for the outcome of the resistance movement being built by the KMSS the Government alone would be held responsible, he said.

He has also made an appeal to the people of the State to come out to the streets to resist the progression of the turbine-laden barges.
