TAWANG, Mar 27:Chief Minister Pema Khandu visited 3MW Sumbachu Small Hydro Power (SHP) at Zemithang on Sunday to inspect the progress of work.

Delayed by almost 4 years, the officials of the executing agency Nortech Power, Kolkata assured the project would be commissioned by August 31next and informed that the 85% of work has been completed.

Khandu, however, expressed disappointment and lambasted the company quizzing them on the tardy progress of work. He strictly issued direction to the corporation to meet all the deadlines on time.

Due to slow pace of work, the project had invited the wrath of the local public resulting from disappointment due to power shortage in the area.

The Chief Minister directed the hydropower department to depute an engineer to monitor the work and strictly ordered the engineers not to abstain from their duty.

Also expressing resentment over the callous attitude of the corporation, RWD Parliamentary Secretary Jambey Tashi called for a meeting at Itanagar in April next. Expressing that the government would accept no further excuses on work delay, he directed the corporation for bringing out realistic work achievements.

The Chief Minister was accompanied by a host of dignitaries.
