Indo-Americans laud India for disallowing mining of “sacred” mountain in Orissa

August 25, 2010

Indo-Americans have applauded India for reportedly rejecting bauxite mining by multinational company in remote tribal area of Orissa, which the environmentalists had described as devastating to the area environment and tribes considered sacred.

Noted Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that Government of India apparently took into consideration the concerns of the tribes living in the area and issues raised by environmentalists involved and it should be commended for that.
