Niyamgiri : It’s a ‘clean sweep’ for tribals


OST Bureau

Rayagada, Aug 19 :

As anticipated the Gram Sabha held today at Jarapa village under Muniguda block in Rayagada district unanimously rejected the proposal for bauxite mining in Niaymgiri hill. 12 of the 18 members of the Gram Sabha present in today’s meeting argued strongly in favour of conserving  the rich biodiversity in and around the sacred Niyamgiri hill.

With this, the proposal for mining in Niyamgiri has been summarily rejected by all the 12 Gram Sabhas organised in Kalahandi and Rayagada districts.
