Go green: Himachal government to tap wind, solar energy in Spiti

Kaza: Terming Spiti Valley ideal for solar and wind energy generation, Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh on Friday said that more such projects would be developed in the area.

Speaking at a public rally at Kaza, the headquarters of Spitia, the chief minister announced that ‘nautor’ or right to utilize the waste land owned by the government would be given to those persons who are landless or having a small landholding with them.

The chief minister said the bridge over the Keer rivulet would be soon constructed and its approach road would be completed soon.Welcome_to_Spiti_Valley

The bridge was washed away last year in flash-floods.

“The government is always considerate towards the demands of the tribal people and today Lahaul-Spiti district is fast developing and all the villages of the valley would be connected with roads,” the chief minister said.

Regarding construction of the Mudh-Bhaba road connecting the Spiti Valley with Kinnaur district, he said the state has taken up the case relating to forest clearance for the project with the central government.

He said the road network in the Spiti Valley would be completed on priority. The roads included Losar to Kyomo, Rangreek to Kwang, Kaza to Langcha and Shithling to Mane to Siluk.

A part of the remote but picturesque Lahaul-Spiti district, the Spiti Valley, a cold desert dotted by tiny hamlets spread over the Himalayan peaks, adjoining Tibet, is a land of Buddhism and virgin nature. (IANS)
