Wikipedia:Neutral point of view[edit]

The following section has been removed to the Talk page as it is a clear violation of Wikipedia:Neutral point of view. The passage should be rewritten entirely, providing citations to back up any assertions, and giving both sides of any dispute. It must be written in an impartial and balanced tone. It must not give the writer's personal opinion of any dispute.

Odisha is not permitting AP to install hydropower units (30 MW capacity) at the toe of Balimela dam on the grounds of secondary reasons. Though AP is permitted in the agreements, (1962 Agreements - pages 239 to 242) Odisha says the site of power house is located in Odisha's territory and AP cannot install the hydro power units in its land. Thus 30 MW power generation capacity at very low generation cost could not be developed for last 40 years due to non resolution of the dispute.

The agreement also states that Kolab river surplus water available in Upper Kolab reservoir can be diverted jointly by Odisha and AP to Sileru / Machkund river basin for enhancing hydro power potential substantially. This diversion scheme has also not materialized till now. Odisha and AP should avoid deadlock in the water sharing negotiations and reach amicable solutions to optimize mutual benefits with the help of neutral experts.

Hi, Skinsmoke, The content says there is a dispute between Odisha and Andhra Pradesh regarding installation of 30 MW hydropower unit citing the agreement between the states (1962 Agreements - pages 239 to 242). It has not supported any state to be biased. The content is fully in compliance with the Wikipedia:Neutral point of view. It only suggested that cheap renewable electricity generation is not taking place due to the disputes and should be resolved amicably. If the 'editor' has more information on this subject, it should be given with references in the article / talk page. It is objectionable and biased act to delete the content from the article and transfer to talk page without prior discussion. The editor (Skinsmoke)should record the reply here.
