Amaila Falls Hydropower Project now highly unlikely

Folks , I am not talking to myself   I am just trying to note some important points in the report in case anyone having interest in the topic care to read.  And this is a good archive also.

Another important point:

As part of a backbone structure in a future larger system, the transmission line may be realised as a separate project in the public sector with more favourable financing than for the BOOT arrangement of the power plant.

And yet you scream that Jagdeo is a magician even though this might have been even worse than his Skeldon fiasco had it not been blocked.

I see your hatred of Jagdeo supersedes rational thinking.  

Why? Are you really suggesting that Jagdeo was a magician?  TK can show you how mediocre the economic performance was prior to Guyana being rescued by high gold prices.

Even Jagan the communist oversaw better economic growth than Jagdeo the magician.

The PNC have made their decision to kill the hydroproject since it was first revived by Jagdeo in 2008.  They now have clearly stated their intention to abandon it. 

Jagdeo awarded the road building project to Fip who did NOTHING, even though millions was spent.

But you think that its rational to allow Jagdeo another billion, even as his management of this project was replete with ineptness and corruption.

If APNU had allowed this under the circumstances it would have been clear that corruption of their leadership was involved.

Even you conceded that the project as configured wasn't appropriate and so had to be stopped.

Road building was a negligible part of the overall cost.  Now PNC in charge, they have no vision for the country, jackass Granger only want to install a few solar panels and call it a day.

I do not concede that the project was infeasible. In fact we are only spoon fed what the PNC govt wants us to hear.  So far there is no evidence that hydro projects in general are uneconomical. If the Amelia falls location is an issue then the PNC needs to tell us where it should be built.
