PDP accused that there are so many hydro power projects functional in Kishtwar but still the youth in our region is unemployed and deprived of the oppurtunity to work on his own land and these hydro power project has not give the employment opportunity to local youths of Kishtwar and responsible for deterioration of the ecological balance as well.
PDD accused that the construction companies have adopted appeasement policy at the behest of union power ministry and was playing in the hands of a particular political party. The district administration is playing a dubious role of protecting the interest of the construction companies at the cost of the locals which speaks about a larger conspiracy.
