Doda, July 5: Public Undertakings Committee (PUC) of Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly today visited Baglihar Hydro Electric Power Project (BHEP) Chanderkote, Ramban to review various stages of implementation of Stage- I and status of work on the Stage-II of the mega project targeted to be commissioned by 2015, an official statement said.
The committee chairman and members accompanied by Managing Director J&K State PDC, Basharat Ahmed Dar inspected various units of the project.
The committee asked the JKSPDC to pay focused attention on the plantation and development of the catchment area so that the negative effects of the Baglihar Water Reservoir could be minimized which has resulted in sinking of land, landslides at various places across Doda- Ramban belt of Chenab river.
The committee chairman said as BHEP was a valuable asset of the state, comprehensive steps are required to reduce its negative impact on the area, particularly soil erosion. The chairman suggested that proper steps like massive plantation along the slopes can avoid the threat once for all.
