Tadadi project not to be stalled: K'taka DyCM

Written by: Staff

Shimoga, May 15 (UNI) Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa today reiterated that the proposed 4000 MW Ultra Mega Thermal Power Project at Tadadi in Uttara Kannada district would not be stalled at any cost.

Speaking to newspersons here, he alleged that some environmentalists had misguided the local pontiffs and political leaders against the ambitious project. The government would soon meet the pontiffs, local legislators and the Member of Parliament and convince them about the project. ''Once they are convinced, the public will automatically be convinced,'' he said.

Mr Yediyurappa said the government had realised the need for a State representative at New Delhi to follow up the files sent by the state. Hence it was thinking of appointing a resident commissioner at New Delhi.

He said a high-level meeting would be held here tomorrow to discuss the possibility of tourism development in the state.

Referring to the Centre's move to build a restaraunt in front of the famous Jog falls in the district at a cost of Rs four crore, Mr Yediyurappa said it was an unscientific move. The proposed project would affect the natural beauty of the spot, he added.
