TD raises environ issue on Obulapuram

Seeking to counter the statement of Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy that the Obulapuram Mining Company has renewed license upto 2017, the TDP has submitted a letter to the Union minister of state for environment and forests Reghupathi on Friday.

The Telugu Desam party has alleged that while sending its proposal for approval to iron ore mining in Obulapuram village of Bellary reserve forest area, the Andhra Pradesh government has failed to give the "true picture" to the environment ministry. "About the various cases pending before the courts, which runs contrary to the guidelines issued by the Government of India, for obtaining approvals under section 2 of the Forest Conservation Act, 1980."

TDPP leader K Yerran Naidu and former MP Kambhampati Rammohna Rao met Mr Reghupati and handed over the letter. "Added to this, the mining department of Government of Andhra Pradesh granted mining licenses and extended lease without prior sanction of the Union of India under the FCA act," Naidu said in the letter.
