Odisha Sun Times Bureau
Bhubaneswar, Feb 27:
The Central Empowered Committee (CEC) inquiring into Sarada iron ore mines in Keonjhar district will be visiting Odisha on Tuesday, March 4.
The CEC will go for field inspection on March 5 and will be holding discussions with the concerned senior officials of the state government in the matter on March 6, sources in the government said on Wednesday evening.
The CEC’s visit assumes significance in view of serious allegations that Jindals who effectively run the Sarada mines have violated the existing Forest and Mining rules and norms with impunity and without attracting the punitive measures that apply in such cases.
