Cong MP to raise issue of people to be displaced by dam 16.1.2018 General News
Congress MP from Uttarakhand Mahendra Singh Mahra said today the party will strongly raise the issue of people who would be displaced by the proposed Pancheshwar dam in Rajya Sabha during the winter session. "The public hearing of the proposed project was completed in a hurry giving no chance to the affected people to express their point of view on rehabilitation," he said at a press conference here. The Rajya Sabha MP alleged that the Modi government seemed in a hurry to construct the project without taking into account the plight of those to be displaced. The public hearing was carried out in a highly unmethodical manner in Pithoragarh, Almora and Champawat districts where the affected population resides, he said. Emphasising that the Pancheshwar dam will change the geography and climatic conditions of three districts forever, he said any action plan on the project must take into account the point of view of people to be affected by it.

Assembly Elections 2017:Will not rest till those who looted country pay a price, says PM Modi 13.2.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Asserting that he will not rest till those who looted the country paid back, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today asked the voters in Uttarakhand to give exemplary punishment in the polls to people who ruined their future. He launched a frontal attack on Congress for "insulting" the armed forces by questioning the surgical strikes, "sleeping" over OROP for 40 years and for "indulging" in corruption. "The time for those who looted the country for 70 years has come to an end. I promise that those who looted the country will have to pay back now. Neither will I rest nor will I let the looters rest in peace till this task is complete. It is time everyone gives an account now," Modi told his last poll rally in Pithoragarh ahead of the February 15 election.

He also hit out at Congress accusing it of ...
