Bauxite mining in the agency area and establishment of an aluminum factory by Jindal in the district with an investment of Rs.9,000 crores would cause environmental disaster and displacement of tribals according to the Paderu MLA, L.Rajarao who said on Sunday.
Reacting to the decision to give mining lese to the Andhra Pradesh Mineral Development Corporation, he said they would oppose lock, stock and barrel if mining was undertaken without addressing to the livelihood problems of the tribals.
He said that Tribal Advisory Committee has adopted a resolution recently that lands owned by Chencus in Srisailam forest area should not be transferred to anyone. The authorities should also ensure that patta lands are not transferred from one tribal to other in the entire State to protect their interest.
