Indo-Nepal dam faces uncertain future 30.1.2018 Deccan Herald - Opinion
A 5,600 MW power project along the Mahakali river, which flows between Nepal and Uttarakhand is yet another sub-Himalayan hydropower project causing a great deal of concern, not only among over 30,000 affected families but also environmentalists, social activists and others. The current agitation against this huge hydropower dam is a reminder of the previous such agitations against dams that have already been built in Uttarakhand in the central Himalayas, such as the 2,400 MW Tehri dam, which continues to face stiff problems even years after its commissioning. The uprooted local people complain about not having been adequately compensated even to this day. The Pancheshwar dam, which is to be built on the Mahakali will be one of the tallest dams in the world. Flowing from Nepal through Uttarakhand, the river enters Uttar Pradesh, flowing south-east across the plains to join the Ghaghra river, a tributary of the Ganga. It descends from 11,800 feet at Kalapani to 660 feet as it enters the Terai plains, ...

U'khand: Activist threatens to protest Centre's eco-sensitive 30.1.2018 General News
Social activist Avdhash Kaushal today threatened to protest a Centre's notification declaring an area from Gaumukh to Uttarkashi as eco-sensitive, claiming it had led to stalling of power projects and forced Uttarakhand to procure electricity from outside. The amount being spent to buy electricity could be used to upgrade nearly 12,500 government primary schools and minimise migration from the state, he said. Kaushal said that he would not let the tax payers' money go to waste in the stalled hydel-power projects and launch a movement for the withdrawal of the notification. Threatening that his organisation -- RLEK -- would "fight in the streets and courts" for revival of the stalled projects, the activist alleged that the notification had no scientific backing. To buttress his argument, he referred to a resolution passed by the Uttarakhand Assembly on March 29, 2011. The resolution had opposed the Centre's notification on the ground that no opinion was sought from ...

After a recent tour to drought prone Bundelkhand and a whirlwind visit of all five Ganga basin states, Uma Bharti is back in the Capital. As one of the senior most ministers in the NDA government, Bharti is in charge of flagship projects such as Namami Gange, interlinking of rivers and irrigation. In a wide-ranging interview ahead of NDA’s third anniversary, Bharti spoke to DNA and was outspoken as ever. Bharti said that there needs to be more patience on the results from Namami Gange. She emphasized that while there were no differences with either the PMO or environment ministry on Ganga and Uttarakhand hydel projects, she firmly believes that projects should not kill the river and stem its ecological flow.  Excerpts: What have been your ministry's achievements in the last three years and what is the single biggest achievement? We have achieved in all fields; water resources, river development and Ganga rejuvenation. In PMKSY (Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana), we have done exceedingly well. We are ...
