Will go beyond Uri and Dulhasti power projects: Mehbooba

KL Report


Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Friday said it will not confine its approach to the return of Uri-I and Dulhasti power projects from NHPC but explore all options to make JK rich in power resources.

The PDP president Mehbooba Mufti while talking to KNS said that besides exploring the modalities of returning Uri-I and Dulhasti to Jammu and Kashmir, the party is striving to revise all royalties and would ensure that the state get its due share. “We have put forward our point and pitched for one of six ultra mega thermal projects at Madya Pradesh,” Mehbooba said, adding that the PDP will go beyond the demand of Uri and Dulhasti’s return.

She maintained that the party will rectify the “wrongs committed by the National Conference in the past and gave away the projects of the state against petty political gains.”

“We have the tenure of six years and we want to assure that the biggest problem faced by the people of the state is of power and same will be addressed during the present dispensation. Everything is in black and white. There is nothing hidden from the people of the state,” Mehbooba said.

Pertinently, the Legislative Assembly Friday witnessed ruckus over the refusal of Center in returning the power projects to the state.
