Minister KTR Wanted the Union Govt to Abolish Bailadila Mining Contract in Odisha

Abolish | Hyderabad, April 11 (Hydnow): BRS Working President KT Rama Rao wanted that the Union government to abolish the Bailadila mining contract in Odisha awarded to the Adani Group saying that the BJP government is working against the interest of both the Telugu States (Telangana and Andhra Pradesh). He wanted the Bailadila mining contract to be awarded to Bayyaram and Visakhapatnam Steel Plant.

Speaking to the press persons, here today, Tarak Rama Rao said that the BJP government is saying that setting up a steel plant at Bayyaram was not feasible, citing low-grade iron ore quality. towards this, the State government had suggested laying a 160 km slurry pipeline from Bailadila to Bayyaram and had also agreed to bear 50 percent of the expenditure to lay the pipeline. Similarly, VSP was about 600 km from Bailadila. While the BJP government claimed that transportation of ore from Bailadila to Bayyaram and VSP was not technically feasible, how would transportation of ore to Adani Group’s plant at Mundra in Gujarat, which was 1800 km away, be feasible, he asked.

He alleged that the BJP government with its evil intention to ensure losses for PSUs was handing over the mining contract to Adani Group, he said, that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is handing over the Navratna PSUs to his two from Gujarat,

If the mining contract was awarded to Bayyaram, it would lead to generating employment for local youth, besides revenue to the Telangana government. Likewise, VSP would also get benefitted. When there were SAIL, NMDC, and APMDC, why did the BJP government at the Centre hand over the mining contract to the Adani group, he asked.

Despite the State government’s repeated appeals to set up a steel plant at Bayyaram, the Union government was not considering the requests. This was even after an assurance made under the AP Reorganization Act, he said. (Hydnow)
