CGNet Swara moderator S. Chowdhury has transmitted the version of Balakrishna Sandh of Titilagarh in a mail. It informs that the private Sahara company is trying to acquire lands on the bank of River Tel for a Thermal Power Plant it wants to commission soon. Titilagarh is marked for intolerable high temperature. Last year the mercury had exceeded 50 and if the Thermal Plant is allowed, the temperature would rise further.
It is intriguing that the Government officials are framing up false cases against whosoever refuses to give his/her land to the Company. Despite people’s case pending in the High Court of Orissa, Naveen Patnaik’s government is siding with Sahara to acquire the huge stretch of land by police force and nefarious tricks to the total detriment of the self-employed farming community’s interest.
