Title: Need for construction of mega dams in Arunachal Pradesh especially Lower Subansiri Hydro Electric project.
SHRI TAKAM SANJOY (ARUNACHAL WEST): Madam Speaker, it was in 1999-2000 that the lower Subansiri Hydro Electric Project of 2000 MW in Arunachal Pradesh was awarded to the National Hydro Power Corporation. It took nearly 14 years to conduct survey and investigation by Brahmaputra Board. After five years of its award to the National Hydro Power Corporation, this project was declared by the Government of India as a National project. Nearly 80 per cent of the construction work has been done by the National Hydro Power Corporation. In recent past, in a very sudden and interesting move, the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti led by Shri Akhil Gogoi in Assam has created not only nuisance but also havoc to the law and order situation in the North-East. The entire North-Eastern States including Assam are facing a very typical and difficult situation. Madam Speaker, this organization led by Shri Akhil Gogoi is said to have connivance with the CPI(M) Maoists movement in North-East. For the first time in history, there are authentic reports of their having connivance, collecting arms and ammunitions, attacking Assam IRBM and all law and order enforcing agencies arms and ammunitions are being snatched. It is going to be one week now. More than 200 vehicles with people got stranded in Arunachal Pradesh. All heavy equipment, including machineries of National Hydro Power Corporation are not allowed to move into the sight of construction. This is a serious breach and challenge to the national security of our country.
I would urge the Government of India to put up a ban on this organization and declare this organization to be an outlaw organization to ensure that the internal and external security and national security of our country is protected. Thank you very much, Madam.
