Meghalaya: Will Ganol hydel project meet its deadline?

TURA | June 10, 2019:

Meghalaya Chief Minister, Conrad Sangma, today inspected the ongoing construction work of the Ganol Hydel Project in the presence of Thomas Sangma, MLA and Advisor to the Chief Minister, Selsella MLA, Ferlene A. Sangma and other officials from the department.

The construction work on the 22.5 MW project started in the year 2014 and will greatly benefit the power deficit State after its completion.

Citing multiple reasons for the delay in the execution of the project including limited time and financial constraints, the Chief Minister said that necessary steps have been taken to iron out the issues being faced by the project.

He has also expressed hope that the project is likely to be completed by December next year.

The Chief Minister had visited the site of the Tribal Research Institute (TRI) near Babadam in the outskirts of Tura.

The project is being funded by the Government of India at the cost of 41 crores. A tribal museum and library of the District Council is also being constructed near the TRI and a Tribal University is also proposed to be constructed adjacent to it in the near future.
