Itanagar: The Student Union Movement of Arunachal (SUMA) today demanded that the state government roll back its decision to assign the work of developing the proposed 330 mw Kurung dam to the North East Electrical Power Corporation (NEEPCO).

The SUMA in a statement claimed that the affected people of both upstream and downstream of the proposed project were not taken into confidence prior to making the decision.

It said the people of the area welcome the proposed dam but are opposed to the agreement between the state government and the NEEPCO, which it said "was signed within closed doors".
If the state government failed to address the grievance of the people in the matter, they would be compelled to move court against the NEEPCO and the state government, the statement said.
