Prime Minister Modi to inaugurate hydro project in Kashmir, Pakistan protests
Updated : May 19, 2018 01:49 PM IST
The 330 megawatt Kishanganga hydropower station, work on which started in 2009, is one of the projects that India has fast-tracked in the volatile state under Modi amid frosty ties between the nuclear-armed countries.
The Kishanganga project was delayed for several years as Pakistan dragged India to the International Court of Arbitration, which ruled in India's favour in 2013.
A day before Modi's trip to the northern state, at least nine people were killed on both sides of the border due to firing by each other's security forces, officials said.
