Kinnaur and the curse of private energy companies
KINNAUR – People outside Kinnaur know too little how about bad it has become. These pictures show routine of locals, walking daily on gradually sliding rocks and parts of hills. The projects are not just risking people’s lives but also causing erosion of land holding apple orchards. The Govt. is after money, which they call development of state economy. That’s the reason given to justify the greed of politicians, taking various favors from these private companies. Private energy companies are insanely rich to drive Govt. officials insane too. Companies throw pieces to everyone who matters, an engineer to high profile ministers of the Himacahal Pradesh Govt. Well, Kinnaur is a heaven without such type of development. At least, people and their agricultural lands will be safe.
