  • Stop that railcar!! 
  • In November of 2011 the Tenmez - Kurga line was closed because of a terrorist act. Southern Tajikistan, which relied heavily on the line did not get supplies. Uzbekistan then cut Tajikistan' s natural gas supply.
  • Time to build the hydropower plants to make up for the loss of natural gas.
  • Tajikistan started construction on the Rogan and other hydropower plants. The Rougan will be the most powerful when it is built. It will generate 13 billion kilowatts of power.
  • No Rogun Dam it block, a large source of our fresh water.
