Excessive mining in AP uranium plant opposed

The Human Rights Forum (HRF) here has urged the state and Central governments to halt the proposed increase in the mining quantity of Uranium plant at Thummalapalle village in Vemula mandal of Kadapa district.

The HRF has been opposing the proposed 4,500 TPD (tonnes per day) in comparison with the current 3,000 TPD.

The HRF, in a press release, stated that the excessive mining of uranium will make the land futile and deplete the groundwater. The scars left by increased uranium mining will be permanent. HRF’s claims are backed by the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) reports.

The uranium mining can eventually harm individuals. To evaluate the aftereffects of uranium mining, one has just to visit Jaduguda in Jharkhand where uranium mining takes place.
