[dropcap]B[/dropcap]JP has alleged irregularities in the MoUs signed by the Arunachal Pradesh government with various hydro power developers and urged the Centre to review them.In a letter to Union Minister of State for Energy Piyush Goyal, state BJP Vice-president Sotai Kri urged him to review the MoUs signed by the state government to build dams and other hydro power projects across the state.
Drawing attention of the minister to the “unsuccessful” mini-hydel projects, Kri in his letter claimed that due to embezzlement and irregularities 75 per cent of the mini hydel projects had failed to materialize.
Demanding a CBI probe into the matter, he said the project opposite to the Parshuram Kund was a threat to the holy site.
He requested the minister to review the project so that it could be shifted at least 5 km away from the present location.
