AthirappillyStating the government had not backtracked from the Athirappally Hydro Electric Project for which the Union Environment Ministry had not given clearance, Kerala Electricity Minister Aryadan Mohammed on 28-06-2011 clarified that the office of the Prime Minister had not worked against the implementation of the project.

''The government has not backtracked from the project. The government will try to implement the project without affecting the biodiversity of the region,'' he told the Assembly during the question hour.

He said the PMO had only sent a complaint registered by the Salim Ali Foundation against the project to the Environment Ministry.

The Athirappally Hydro Electric Project would only be implemented after a consensus had been reached and with the permission of the Environment Ministry, Mr Mohammed said.

Union Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh had taken a stand against the project only after protests came from some quarters.

However, Mr Mohammed made it clear that the project had got the clearance of the Environment Ministry trice.
