Subansiri dam work not to be halted: RameshNEW DELHI, Aug 12 – Notwithstanding the hue and cry over the expert panels report, Union Minister of State for Environment and Forest (MoEF), Jairam Ramesh today gave enough indications to suggest that work on the Subansiri Lower Hydroelectric Power Project is unlikely to be halted but he promised to address the concerns of the downstream States.
Clarifying the position of his Ministry at the end of a Calling Attention Motion on The Environment Impact of Big Dams in North Eastern Region including Lower Subansiri Hydro Electric Projects moved by Biren Baishya in Rajya Sabha, here this afternoon, Ramesh sought to allay the apprehension of the MPs, assuring that host of studiesincluding the downstream impact studies would be carried out before clearing hydropower projects in the future.
If the report says the project should not go ahead, we will not clear them, assured Ramesh, referring to the projects that have not been implemented so far, amidst a pandemonium in the House over the issue.
We will take utmost care not to repeat the insensitive manner in which the projects were cleared and we will be conducting all the necessary studies, he further assured, even as the AGP and CPI-M MPs engaged in an argument with the Minister.
Ramesh, however, hinted that he may not be able to do much in case of Subansiri Lower Hydro Power Project, asserting that he cannot become a Minister for stoppage. I cannot stop projects, he stressed, leading to further turmoil.
If the Project is on the implementation stage and 50 per cent of the work has been completed, I cannot stop it, he clarified.
When the Project is under implementation all I can do is ensure mitigation measures so that adverse environment impact is minimised, he said, provoking a load of protest by Biren Baishya, Kumar Deepak Das and Brinda Karat, among others.
I cannot give a clear and categorical assurance that the Subansiri Lower Hydroelectric Project will be stopped. I can assure to minimise the adverse impact on theenvironment and ensure that the National Hydroelectric Power Corporation (NHPC) implements all the measures to protect the environment, he added, reiterating that he proposes to visit Guwahati and Arunachal Pradesh next month.
Sharing the concerns of the MPS, he argued that the country needs to expand its hydel generation capacity, which is a clean source of energy. However, I am also acutely conscious of the fact that serious ecological concerns have to be addressed while harnessing our hydel resources, he remarked.
Ramesh said building these projects would also be important for Indias strategic negotiating power with China.If we do not develop hydel power on Siang river, our negotiating capacity with China will be affected.
On members concern over the impact of hydel projects in Bhutan, he said they also fulfill our strategic necessity.
Ramesh, however, ended up provoking the MPs more and there appeared few takers to his assurance. A remark made in jest by the Minister infuriated the AGP MPs further, who jumped out of their seats and tried to march up to the well ofthe House. Finally, at the suggestion of Ravi Shankar Prasad, the Minister withdrew his remarks.
During the past couple of week, a number of delegations from Assam and Arunachal Pradesh including All Assam Students Union, All Mising Students Union, Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti, experts drawn from Gauhati University and IIT Guwahati and anti-Dam lobbyist have met Ramesh pressing for halt to all dam activities as recommended by the Expert Panel. Inside the Parliament too, the issue figured.
Referring to the 2000 MW Lower Subansiri Hydroelectric Project, the Minister said this is the biggest Project undertaken in India so far and is a run of the river scheme on river Subansiri.
A comprehensive Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) study for Lower Subansiri was submitted by NHPC for appraisal, covering all the environmental aspects and baseline data with respect to meteorology, geology, seismology, water quality, land use pattern, terrestrial ecology, wildlife, aquatic ecology, fisheries and socio-economic aspects, as well as disaster management plan, he said.
Based on the data given in the EIA report and subsequent clarification, the MoEF accorded the environment clearance on July 16, 2003, Ramesh informed.
The minister further added that his ministry has taken note of the House Committee Report tabled in Assam Assembly and the Expert Panel report. The MoEF has also received comments of NHPC on the recommendations of the Expert Group, he added.
Earlier, in his written statement, the Minister said that concept of downstream impact is a recent one. This issue has been considered bythe Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) for River Valley and Hydroelectric Projects (HEPs). The EAC has suggested downstream studies need to be undertaken by the proponents of Lower Demwe and Lower Siang HEPs located in Arunachal Pradesh.
The major concern is drastic alteration of the flow in the lean season in the River, which may lead to significant adverse impact to both terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity, the minister revealed.
He informed that his ministry has undertaken two basin studies for Lohit and Bichom Basin in Arunachal Pradesh to adopt the River Basin approach for the future projects instead of the usual project-by-project approach to environmental impact assessment. Further, there are proposals for undertaking similar studies for Subansiri and Siang Basins by the Central Water Commission, he added.
Training on aircraft model-making at IITGUWAHATI, Oct 21 – Windage, a two-day training programme on aero modelling, is being organised in IIT Guwahati from October 24. It would be the first time that more than 100 students of the region would have intensive hands on training on various aspects of designing model aircraft.
According to an official statement issued by the organisers, a major problem with aero modelling is lack of guidance and awareness among school and college students. Most of the people involved in this area belong to NCC or Air Force and they hold camps from time to time to teach aero modelling to students. But lack of civilian involvement has limited the growth of the sport.
In view of this situation the aero modelling club of IIT decided to organise the event that would teach the fundamentals of the craft as well as provide practical training. The programme would also enable participants to have an understanding of basic aerodynamics and structural design.
Registration fee for a single participant is Rs 500 and students can book their registration by sending an e-mail at email@example.com. Students from schools and colleges can also contact Atinderpal Singh for more details.
Windage includes three workshops, two lectures and one air show. The whole event is planned such that it will give a simple but thorough introduction to aero modelling. The first workshop is about basic application of physics on paper planes. It will revise the concepts of students and give them a push to start thinking about the practical application of theory.
The second workshop centres on making Chuck Gliders in which students will make gliders of kits provided by the organisers. Trainees would be guided by experts because these kits need proper handling of Balsa wood. The best part of the workshop is that students can take home the gliders made by them.
Finally a workshop would impart training on R-C kit assembly. It will demonstrate how to assemble a radio-controlled aircraft. Besides showing participants about wings fabrication, fuselage fabrication, engine installation, radio installation and servo motors working in this workshop.
For the benefit of the participants a flying display of various remote-controlled aircraft would also take place. The air show involving the model planes will take place at 4 pm on Sunday.

AASU calls for halt to Subansiri worksGUWAHATI, July 23 – Taking exception to Power Minister Pradyut Bardolois comments during a press briefing on mega dams, the All Assam Students Union (AASU) today accused the State Government of not implementing the recommendations of the committee on the Lower Subansiri dam comprising experts from IIT-Guwahati, Gauhati University and Dibrugarh University.
The AASU also demanded that work on the Lower Subansiri dam be kept in abeyance pending submission of the report of the proposed expert committee comprising scientists from abroad.
In a statement, the AASU said that the Government was against implementing the recommendations of the expert committee as its findings went against the Governments stand.Even though there is no need for another expert committee, yet we feel that there should be a discussion on the issue at a panel comprising experts from foreign countries as well as our own in the greater interest of the State. But pending submission of the findings of the new expert committee, work on the Lower Subansiri dam should be stopped, AASU president Sankar Prasad Rai and general secretary Tapan Gogoi said, adding that such a step alone would prove the Governments sincerity on the matter.
The AASU leaders further said that the student body had been opposing the construction of mega dams in the region since 2001 and it had also been pressing for a study of the cumulative impact of 168 proposed mega dams in Arunachal Pradesh.
The AASU was the first to detect the conspiracy of constructing big dams in the North-east while grossly undermining the interests of the people and the environment. We drew the attention of the Government to this in 2006, following which the tripartite meet between the AASU, and the State Government and the NHPC took place on December 8 under the presidentship of the Power Minister himself, with the meet deciding on havingthe expert committee comprising faculties of the two universities and IIT-Guwahati, it said.
Asserting that its stand on big dams was clear and in the best interests of the State and its people, the AASU said that the Government should discard its plan of constructing big dams on the geologically and environmentally fragile eastern Himalayan region.
