Re: Investment board and Nepal's water resources
December 19, 2012 Radhesh Pant CEO Investment Board Radhesh jee Delighted to learn about your commitment to take necessary steps to secure Nepal's interest. However, the very approval IB has granted to "fix" capacity @ 900 MW ROR is detrimental to Nepal. Full potential of the site is 4,180 MW, storage. It should implemented as a multipurpose project. Pls spare sometime to study articles/paper on the subject. You may be playing into Indian lobby that is trying to ensure that Nepal does not use Karnali water for consumptive use in dry season - best way to secure food security in Nepal. I just hope that you don't do anything that will make you repent in future Regards Ratna Sansar Shrestha Sent from my iPhone On Dec 19, 2012, at 11:06, Radhesh Pant
Dear Ratna Sasar jee:
As per my discussion with you and Dipakji earlier, Investment Board will take necessary steps to secure Nepal's interest. This will primarily be achieved through a thorough negotiations on the PDA. The decisions that has been made are just routine and administrative. Pls. be rest assured.
