Nagarjuna not publicised relevant documents: Pejawar Seer


Speaking to the media persons here on Tuesday after going through the grievances of a victim named Bhageerathi Prabhu who has been allegedly assaulted by the Company Manager, the seer opined that the works should not affect the life of the people. “I will get in touch with the legal intricacies concerning the ongoing works, despite the fact that most of the disputes are in Court. The forcible evacuation of the land holders seems to be absurd. I will try my best to work in the interests of the sufferers, he added.

The company has failed to reveal any pertinent documents. Home Minister Dr V S Acharya and Ananth Kumar have assured to take care of the whole lot to avoid all sorts of environmental hassles. They have also guaranteed that all the evacuees will be fairly compensated. If they fail to do so, I will take further measures to avoid injustices. Besides a meet should be held to discuss the problems related to environment disasters that are about to occur with the commencement of the plant, he said.

Bhageerathi Prabhu, an elementary school teacher, has allegedly been severely assaulted by the Company Manager David when she tried to resist the construction works of the ash pond. The ash pond is being constructed adjacent to her agricultural land. Once the pond is built, the entire surrounding agricultural lands will be affected. The walls of the compound will act as blockades to the flowing water. She accused that there is police backing for all the activities of the Company. They asked the Manager to file counter case against her when she went to register her grievance. The case related to her land is in the Court, she added.

Suneetha Prabhu, Margaret, Sandeep Kotian and others approached the seer seeking justice.
