CVPPPL another sell out: PDP
Srinagar, June 29: Opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Wednesday termed the newly announced joint venture of Chenab Valley Power Projects Private Ltd (CVPPPL) as ‘another sell out’ of Jammu and Kashmir’s water resources.
“Water resources are the nerves of our state and the present government is selling it to NHPC. The joint venture with NHPC is a fresh sell out which make us angry,” the PDP chief spokesman Naem Akthar said while addressing a party convention here.
He accused the government of taking people for a ride and depriving them of their own resources by “promising them sky and doing nothing for them.”
“The NC sells their interest in the name of plebiscite, autonomy and development,” Akhtar alleged.
Describing power resources as a constitutional right of citizens of Jammu and Kashmir he said, “Nobody can kill us if we ask for it.”
CVPPPL, a joint venture company between J&K State Power Development Corporation, NHPC and Power Trading Corporation of India is setting up three hydro power projects in the Chenab basin with a cumulative generation capacity of 2120 MWs. The projects include Pakal Dul (1000 MW), Kiru (600 MW) and Kawar (520 MW).
The chairman of Board of Directors CVPPPL, M Y Khan, on Tuesday had announced that the CVPPPL was given approval by the Registrar of Companies, Government of India earlier this month.
‘Omar tried to turn wrath of people in Beerwah into a virtue’
The spokesman while reacting to Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s recent statement claiming that he doesn’t make false promises, said, “It was ironical that Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and his publicity machinery tried to turn the wrath of people in Beerwah into a virtue by claiming that he doesn’t make false promises.”
“If Chief Minister and his party National Conference have any sense of accountability then they should go through the election manifesto and the promises made in 2008 which include employment free electricity and subsidized cooking gas etc,” Akhtar told the gathering
On Tuesday Omar Abdullah while addressing a gathering in central Kashmir’s Beerwah area had said that he would not make a promise that he cannot fulfill as his politics is based on principles of truth and integrity. “I will only promise what I can deliver,” Omar had said.
