The Haryana government on Friday justified the setting up of a Rs 502 crore Integrated Solid Waste ManagementApower plant in Gurugram district saying that it will not only generate electricity but also help in keeping the area clean.
The justification came in view of opposition to the plant by residents of Bandhwari village in district to its setting up.
To be set up by August 2019, the plant would generate 25 MW of electricity.
Laying the foundation stone of the plant in Bandhwari village on Friday, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said it would be installed by fulfilling the conditions laid down by the National Green Tribunal.
"Many residents of Bandhwari village have met me asking for such plant," he said.
"Final decision on the plant would be taken only after their return from China," the spokesman said.
Khattar said a Lichen Treatment Plant was being constructed here to stop the underground water from getting contaminated. The plant would be functional by the end of April.
