Blaming NEEPCO for the flood fury unleashed in North Lakhimpur, Assam due to water released from its Ranganadi hydel power project in the upstream of the river in Arunachal Pradesh, banned militant outfit ULFA(I) on July 11 demanded the organization to pay ‘adequate compensation’ to the affected people.

In an emailed statement to the media in Guwahati, the ULFA(I) alleged that the flood situation in Assam has been worsened due to unscientific and poor construction of embankments.

The outfit demanded that the NEEPCO should pay adequate compensation to all flood-affected people, failing which it will have to face ‘dire consequences and leave Assam and Arunachal Pradesh’.

The ULFA(I) also warned of similar devastation in downstream areas if the 2000 MW proposed Subansiri hydel power project is constructed without proper scientific planning.
