Upper Tamakoshi completion will end all energy problems in next 6 months: Pun

Barsha Man Pun

Kathmandu, January 21

Minister for Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation Barsha Man Pun says the ongoing construction of Upper Tamakoshi Hydroelectric Project, Nepal’s biggest hydro project so far, will be over within next six months.

The completion will also mark the end of all problems in the sector, he claims.

Speaking at a function organised in Kathmandu on Monday, the Minister said the government was preparing to make the country independent in energy generation.

He, however, presented statistics that the government imported electricity worth Rs 70 million from India in the last fiscal year.

Pun was of the view that sufficient electricity should be produced to ensure two digit economic growth of the country.

Stating that everyone needed to invest their time, energy and resources in the national development, the Minister called on the private sector not to get frightened with the communist government.
