Orissa: Left to launch movement against illegal mining

Posted by Admin on November 25, 2009

CPI general secretary AB Bardhan addressing the Left rally in Bhubaneswar on Tuesday.

BHUBANESWAR: Leaders of the Left parties today accused Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik of promoting mines mafias to loot minerals of the State in the name of industrialisation.Addressing a State-level rally jointly organised by CPI, CPM and Forward Bloc here, CPI national general secretary A B Bardhan and his CPM counterpart Prakash Karat said minerals of the country are being looted in broad daylight and even Orissa has not been spared.While the revenue income from royalty to individual states and foreign exchange earnings from export of minerals is very insignificant, mines mafia are getting very powerful and trying to destabilise elected governments. They called for a massive movement against the open loot of mineral wealth of the State and the country as well.

The multi-crore mining scam has dented the image of the Chief Minister, the two Left leaders said and advised him to shift his focus to agriculture in view of the unabated farmer suicides.The anti-farmer policy of the Centre and the faulty policy of the State are responsible for the farmers suicide, Karat said.Farmers in the State are committing suicide due to the anti-farmer policy of the BJD Government, Bardhan said. While the Government had failed in its commitment to provide irrigation to the farmers, acquisition of thousands of acres of agricultural land for industries and educational institutions like Vedanta University is nothing but anti-farmer.

He lambasted the Government for attacking tribals who were fighting for their right over land. While the Centre has miserably failed to check soaring prices of essential commodities, the Left leaders said the proposed Food Security Bill by the UPA Government will finish whatever food security the poor people have.Senior leader of Forward Bloc Naren Dey, CPM leaders Sivaji Patnaik, Janardan Pati, CPI general secretary Dibakar Nayak and several others spoke.
