Small hydel power projects are harmless: Dy Speaker, MLA

DH News Service, Madikeri:

"If the localites do not oppose, then we do not have any objections for small hydel power projects,' said Deputy Speaker K G Boapaih and MLA M P Appacchuranjan.

Speaking at a discussion on the development of Kodagu at Patrika Bahvana in Madikeri on Tuesday, they said hydel power projects are neither harmful to the environment nor submerge low laying areas. However, we will not object, if the residents are happy with the hydel power projects.
