Vedanta’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative Vedanta Khushi is motivated and self driven PR exercise to create emotionally perfect image in the eyes of the world. Vedanta has so much to clean in their own house; they do not need a social cause to hunt outside of their own pitch. How can? on one side Vedanta is kicking the dinner plates of parents and Vedanta KHUSHI on other side is offering free food to kids in lunch boxes . I have tried to unfold the truth.
While packing Lunch boxes with aluminum foil everyday in our kitchen, while buying fresh burger from any eating joint , do we ever have a thought , that after how much of revolution , politics and bloodshed this piece of aluminum reached in my Kitchen ? . Thousands hectare of green forest land had been chopped? Hundreds of villages, communities and natural resources would have been sacrificed, the harsh truth is after thousands of such stories, and aluminum foil reaches in our kitchens.
Vedanta has suffocated the life of Adivasis in Niyamgiri foothills. The entire area is overlapped with Red Mud. Most of humans, animals, birds and insects are infected with skin diseases. Proper medical facilities are unavailable; there is no sign of hospital. By pressures, by vicious means, by force, by paying less, Vedanta bought the farming and forest land of Local tribes. They cheated them by providing technical training to make them skillful workers in Vedanta Mines and factories, as soon as land got transferred, Vedanta thrown them out.
Red mud has converted all crop fields and forest into waste land, the vein is spreading. The river Vasamdhara is the main source of water for all constituents of habitats in Niyamgiri. Vedanta’s Red Mud resulted in converting drinkable water of Vasamdhara to polluted and toxic waste; it is causing dangerous skin diseases and cancer. Even Animals and birds are rejecting it to drink. The situation of Vasamdhara is same from Niyamgiri till Kalingapatnam. Amnesty International broke this harsh truth.
Niyamgiri foothills is a treasure of bauxite, Bauxite is a main component to make aluminum. According to statistic, Niyamgiri foothills contain 72 lakh million ton of bauxite. The average cost of 1 ton bauxite is approx 6500 INR, whereas all 72 lakh million ton is not awarded to Vedanta for mining. The prices are fixed very little, when Government awards a license to mine, it is simple to understand the covetous intentions of Vedanta by looking at the history and biology of Vedanta.
Government and Vedanta has fixed the price of Niyamgiri foothills, the predators have camped and pasted like a woodworm. Vedanta Aluminum Ltd is camped with crooked intentions in Laljiganj located at south Odisha . A fake kingdom of 700 Hectares expanded by cheating legally and eating illegally, hooks or crook they used every evil outfit.
Village Bundela initiated the revolution against Vedanta few years back, many voices were raised, and dozens of revolutionaries are martyred. There are few Tribal’s if they further replaced from this areas, they will lose their name from World map. They are already on the way of extinction because of Vedanta what a Price tag we have placed on forest and tribes in this materialistic world. We are the silent observer of slaughter of Humanity.
Both logic and consciousnesses say that Vedanta must go back to London .
