People reject draft impact report on Sutlej hydel projects

The people of Sutlej valley have rejected the draft study report on the cumulative environment impact on the river basin presented by the Indian Council for Forestry Research and Education, Dehradun, on behalf of the Himachal Pradesh government. Local representatives and environmentalists said over the weekend that a month’s notice should have been given for the public consultation after sharing the executive summary of the environment impact assessment (EIA) report under the Environment Impact Assessment Notification. They complained that a short notice of just four days was given to the stakeholders.
