The must needed signs of “approval” to the Centre was recently being exchanged from Assam and Arunachal Pradesh states CMs’ to jet-start 2000 M/W Lower Subansiri Hydroelectricity project at Geruamukh along the Assam-Arunachal boundary.
This project was one of the most ambitious projects here in North East that was shelved post the anti-dam protests back in 2011. CM Pema Khandu stated that the hydro-electricity project is a long-gone stalled and the meeting with Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal will provide the much needed steer to the project.
