The Mined and the Undermined


Here are two of the many examples of gross environmental misgovernance in opposition-led states: Chhattisgarh and Odisha, both in ecologically sensitive regions prone to man-animal conflict. While clearances were granted for these projects by the MoEFCC, the respective state governments have not done enough to stop these projects, despite promises to the native communities. As protests rage across the country against the central government, let us not forget the protests brewing in these regional pockets against incompetent and ineffective oppositions.
