Pada-yatra against Posco and Vedanta University projects

Posted by Admin on November 30, 2009

Rallies and Padayatra from Paradip to Puri for protesting POSCO  & Vedant project in OrissaThe anti-land acquisition leaders and the activists of various Jana Sangathans in Orissa have intensified their stir against the projects of Posco and Vedanta, the two big ticket investments in the state.
They have demonstrated their stiff opposition to these projects by starting a pada-yatra on Sunday from Dhinkia village in Jagatsinghpur district, the proposed site of the Posco project, up to Puri, the site chosen for the Vedanta University project.

The members of the Vedanta Vishwavidyalaya Sangharsh Samiti (VVSS), the organization spearheading the movement against the Vedanta University project have also thrown their weight behind these activists.

The pada-yatra comes at a time when the state government is making frantic efforts to woo the locals for the Posco steel project ahead of the foundation stone laying ceremony for this mega venture scheduled for January 10 next year.

The week-long pada-yatra commencing from Dhinkia on Sunday and culminating at Puri on the coming Saturday is aimed at generating public support against the Posco steel plant and the Vedanta University project.

The activists have dawn up plans to strengthen the movement through involvement of women and village youths in the programme.

The anti-land acquisition leaders took a swipe at the Orissa government for offering 4004 acres for the Posco project and 6,000 acres of land for the Vedanta University project.

They alleged that the state government is selling minerals, water and other resources to the industries at the cost of the farm community.

They asserted that no forces can stop their movement and vowed to fight against Posco and Vedanta projects with the cooperation of the villagers. BS
