Civil society group, few traders association question bureaucracy
Communal colour?

Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Sept 19: A group of traders associations and a so called civil society group today apparently gave posting of bureaucrats a communal colour.
J&K Socio-Economic Coordination Committee (JKSECC), which claimed to be an amalgam of 27 civil society formations of trade, tourism, industrial, horticulture, travel, houseboat, transport chambers and associations on Wednesday issued a press statement after addressing a press conference.
In the statement they said that state Administrative Council (SAC) on 5th of September 2018 has accorded sanction to the formation of a separate joint venture company to develop 850 MW Ratle Hydroelectric Power Project on Chenab basin. "As reported, the joint venture company is intended to be set up by J&K State Power Development Corporation (JKSPDC) in partnership with an undisclosed central PSU of GOI," they said.
What surprising is that they held the bureaucracy responsible for preparing and placing such "suspicious proposals before SAC for its approval". "It needs to be examined seriously how the state bureaucracy is ever ready to move these kinds of proposals during Governor's Rule," they said.
"In 2008-09, during the Governor's rule, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed regarding a similar proposal for formation of a joint venture among JKSPDC, NHPC and NPTC for execution of three power projects namely Pakal Dul, Kiru and Kawer for cumulative capacity of 2120 MWs. Deplorably, the next political dispensation honored the said MOU verbatim and gave a formal shape to the formation of Chenab Valley Power Projects Ltd. (CVPP) with a grant of major share of 51% to the central PSUs. This is done in spite of the fact that NHPC had earlier failed to execute Pakal Dul HEP allotted to it in 1999-2000 under Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis and deserved to be penalized," they claimed.
They said that press conference was meant to make public aware about the "sinister design of the present regime to gift away yet another Hydroelectric Power Project to some unknown central PSU clandestinely under ' joint venture' on terms and conditions that have not been revealed to public". They claimed that the decision of the State Administrative Council (SAC) to introduce a partner for execution of Ratle HEP is "inexplicable and grossly against people's interests". "SAC should not forget that harnessing of power potential is one of the limited avenues available to us for generating our own resources".
They have demanded that the decision of SAC taken on 5th September regarding formation of a joint venture with some central PSU for execution of Ratle HEP be revoked immediately.
"That Chenab Valley Power Projects (P) Ltd. incorporated in the year 2011 should be scrapped forthwith. That power projects of Salal, Uri I and Dul Hasti which are under the illegal and unconstitutional occupation of NHPC should be restored to the people of Jammu and Kashmir."
