PPSS holds protest rally at Balitutha

(image) Bhubaneswar: The POSCO Pratirodh Sangram Samiti ( PPSS) on Sunday had organised a rally at Balitutha in Jagatsinghpur.

The PPSS have launched this agitation protesting against the adverse effects the project would have in the proposed site.  Earlier, they had strongly opposed the land acquisition for the proposed POSCO project.

The POSCO Pratirodh Sangram Samiti have also announced a series of programmes to intensify its stir against displacement after the Ministry of Environment and Forests granted its conditional clearances to the proposed steel plant and captive port projects of POSCO on January 31 this year.

This anti- POSCO rally comes at a time when the State government is preparing to renew the MoU with POSCO.
