Vijay Singh Mankotia, Congress leader from Kangra, said today that the micro-hydel projects in the Shahpur Assembly constituency were wreaking havoc on the ecology of the area.

He said due to the violation of norms by micro-hydel projects, houses at Harvoh were sinking. He specifically targeted the 5-MW Brahol Top micro-hydel project, which is owned by Kamal Padha, BJP leader from the area, and the Raheja power project.
