Police moved for action against TATA and JSL

Pernicious pollution caused by TATA Steel and JSL is dragging at least 10,000 people of Vyasanagar, Jajpur into unmanageable health hazards annually, as per allegation raised before the Police seeking immediate action under the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 and the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986.

In a signed complaint addressed to the IIC of Jajpur Road P.S., President of Saheed Bhagat Singh Yubak Sangha, Vyasanagar Sri Rajendra Biswal , Secretary Hemant Kumar Dhir and several members including Niranjan Ghadai, Pradeep Kumar Mohanty, M. Pattnaik, Chandramani Samal, Malay Biswal, A. Nayak, Satyakam Mohanty have alleged that both these industries are “spreading” life threatening dusts in the entire area by open-air transportation of fly-ash of their respective power plants where intentionally they do not use the de-dusting system in sharp disregard to legal stipulation.

“We have had enough of giant coal power stations spewing poison into the air night and day. Smog, acid rain, Toxic mercury, and fine particles embed deep in our lungs. They are literally killing us.” they have alleged.
