World Bank not involved in Tipaimukh dam project
New Delhi: World Bank on Tuesday clarified that it
is not involved in the proposed Tipaimukh dam project on the
river Barak in Manipur.
The clarification came in response to news reports
which had wrongly stated that the Tipaimukh dam project would
be funded by the multi-lateral lending agency.
The World Bank, it was pointed out, was funding the
power transmission project in the north-eastern region which
was not linked with the dam project.
While announcing the transmission line project, Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh during his recent visit to Imphal had
said, "I understand that a project for expansion and
upgradation of power transmission, sub-transmission and
distribution networks in the north eastern states has been
posed to the World Bank for funding.
"I am asking the concerned central government
ministries to pursue the matter actively with the World Bank."
