Dash Maoist against Koshi High Dam


ITAHARI:
The CPN-Maoist affiliated Kirant National Liberation Front has said that it will not allow the rest of the works on the Saptakoshi High Dam protesting the extension of two years for the preparation of its Detailed Project Report (DPR). Front Central Vice Chairman Rajendra Kiranti said the Front has the policy of linking all the projects run by India in Nepal with national independence.
He  said Nepalese are being cheated  from such projects run in Nepal by India and the works of Saptakoshi project which is not in the interest of Nepalese,  will be stopped at any cost in co-work with all stakeholders.
The work was begun following the decision of the Nepal-India High Level Water Resources Meeting.
Nepal has so far spent Rs. 9.4 million and India Rs. 660 million for the project which Indian government has been giving high priority.  Study and research are still remaining because of obstructions made in different times.
Now target has been set to complete the DPR within two years by investing Rs. 24.9 million from Nepal and Rs. 1.4 billion from India.  However, the Front has warned not to allow the rest of the works by using all kinds of force.
