Srinagar, Jun 11 (PTI) India will supply 500 megawatts of electricity to Pakistan for which the transmission lines are being laid, Water Resources Secretary Dhruv Vijay Singh said today. "Pakistan has asked us for power, so we have decided to supply 500 megawatts to them immediately. We have power and they are in need. They asked us politely, we said sure. We said we will make transmission lines and you pay us international rates," Singh said at the Seventh Hydro Power Convention here. He said India and Pakistan were cooperating on sharing electricity. "(But) water gets a bit emotional issue." Singh was chairing a panel discussion on the first day of the two-day convention to discuss the need for unified policy between Ministry of Power and Ministry of Environment. He said construction of new hydro power projects was facing clearance issues from Union Environment Ministry and also resistance from Pakistani government. "It is not only the Ministry of Environment and Forests which is concerned, Pakistan has raised objections and asked India to stop (constructing hydro power projects)," he said.
