Residents oppose Ganeshpal mini-hydel project

Local residents led by taluk panchayat member Narasimha Hegde met Uttara Kannada Deputy Commissioner Ujwalkumar Ghosh at the site for the Ganeshpal mini- hydel project on Wednesday to express their opposition to the project.

The permission given to Kare Power Resources Pvt. Ltd. to take up the project was cancelled in view of the protests by the people. The permission given to the company expired on 16 September, 2015.

Mr. Ghosh visited the spot in the backdrop of reports that Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Limited has revoked the permission given to the company. Deputy Conservator of Forests Manjunath was with him. Mr. Manjunath told Mr. Ghosh that the site would come under the Shalmala Valley Conserve and permission of the National Board for Wild Life was required to take up a project there. The Deputy Commissioner instructed Mr. Manjunath to submit a report on the issue.
