Following is a report from The Pioneer:

The people of Lanjigarh on Sunday met Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and said the Vedanta Group has done nothing for the peripheral development of the plant site in Lanjigarh. “Earlier, we had supported the company. But we started opposing the company as local people are not getting any benefits. Only 12 people from our areas have got appointment,” said Nirmal Samal, a social activist from the area.

A villager Prafulla Majhi said how his family had given 10 acres of lands but no employment was given to the family. “They gave Rs 10 lakh to us. We divided the money among us,” he said, adding that for sustenance of livelihood, one needs a job.

The people also alleged that the company was careless on checking pollution. They also called on the senior BJD leader and Rajya Sabha member Pyari Mohan Mohapatra.
