RE: FW: My article on West Seti Project

Dear Sagar

I am happy to note that you are a fast learner. It was me who brought up the issue of project life and the cost of “Decommissioning” for the first time that Nepal will have to bear under present arrangement, if implemented as it is. I have dealt with all these issues in my article published in Hydro Nepal which can be accessed by clicking the link below:

What you need to understand is that it will not be possible to cover all these issue in an article of about 800 words. In the article you are referring to I am merely trying to draw people’s attention to two issues:

1.       This project should be built in the interest of Nepal and people of Nepal.
2.       I am also suggesting a number of modalities that will ensure the above.

I Hope you will be able to understand the message carried by this article in the above light.

Take care and keep in touch.

With best regards,

Ranta Sir,
  You are not talking about the life of the project. I think such type of project could not run more than 30/35 year because of sanitation.
     I have heard that 70 MW of electricity will get by Nepal in Free.
Selling of the electricity in india in Very little price and getting 70 MW of electricity is Like a Nepali slogan  KHUKHURO THALIYARA BOKO
   I think with out foreign investment we could not complete this project. I have studied about the increasing energy demand of Nepal. I
think one day the cost of fossils fuel will be go very high, At that time all house hold application and activities will totally turned in
Electricity. At that time the demand of electricity will increase in high rate. I think this is my projection of Nepal after 10/12 year. At
that time how we run the country?
