Nadi river diversion cost

The Bainkhaiyum propaganda machine is talking up the Nadi river diversion project, which is going to cost US$150 million. Nothing is said about where the money to pay for this is coming from. We’re-supposed to think that this is a free gift from Japan but last year when the idea was being floated again, the Japanese said “a large portion of costs have to be funded with overseas loans”. So, more overseas loans, which will have to be paid for with foreign currency we haven’t got.
