Proposed Athagarh cement plant faces protest

| | ATHAGARH | in Bhubaneswar

The Aditya Birla’s proposed Ultra Tech cement plant at Khamarnuagaon under Cuttack district’s Athagarh block has witnessed protests by locals despite obtaining required 90 acres from the Government to start plant there.

Addressing a Press conference, villagers of Gurudijhatia and Khamarnuagaon alleged that they would loss almost all grazing fields for cattle as the lands given to the company are of gochar kisam (cow grazing category).

Besides, they alleged that jumbos from Kapilash and Chandaka jungles would barge into human habitations and destroy crops after a fence is erected.

On the other hand, the company told mediapersons at Khuntuni that the plant would be people-friendly.
