Construction of hydel project obstructed

Myagdi-The construction work of the 42 MW capacity Mistrikhola hydel project has been obstructed by the local residents of Narchyang in Annapurna rural municipality-4.
Alleging that the project management failed to take efforts to control the landslide triggered by water flowing out of the project tunnel outlet, the Annapurna Youth Club of Narchyang led the protest leading to closure of the construction work since Saturday evening.
The work will be halted until a written agreement reached between the two sides, said the Club member Amit Pun. The project is an undertaking of the Robust Energy Limited. The construction work on the project began on June 13, 2016. More than 60 per cent of the work has been completed. The project is estimated to cost Rs. 5.64 billion.
