Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki has urged National Hydro Power Corporation (NHPC) to fast track implementation of power projects in the state in accordance with terms and conditions specified in respective memorandum of understandings (MoUs).
NHPC Chief Managing Director ABL Srivastava had called on the chief minister at New Delhi yesterday to discuss the status of ongoing power projects in the hill state, official sources said here on Wednesday.
Tuki told the NHPC CMD that the company should authorise the state government to recruit people in non-skilled posts against power projects to boost local employment.
The CMD assured that NHPC would consider it and carry out the recruitment process in a phased manner, the sources said.
For recruitment of security personnel for its different projects, Tuki asked the NHPC CMD to either employ local people as private security or request the state machinery to provide security guards on payment basis.
Tuki also discussed corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities of the power PSU in the state and asked for expediting the establishment of a college in Tawang and the construction of a tunnel from Sessa to Jang as committed, the sources added.
