Displacement victims stop uranium transportation at Narwa

Jadugoda: The indefinite agitation of displacement victims of Narwa Pahar staged dharna on the second consecutive day here on Wednesday at Narwa Main Gate.

Holding placards, the agitators demanded jobs in order to call off the protest. The agitators said that the company should either give them jobs or should return their lands.

The agitators, demonstrating under the banner of UCIL Narwa Pahar Visthapit Committee, were led by Somay Kisku and Khelaram Murmu. Earlier in the day, the agitators stopped the transportation of Uranium ore from Narwa to Jadugora. A large number of local youths participated in the agitation.

UCIL already suffered huge loss yesterday as a result of stalling of its production and transportation activities during the strike called by its labour union leaders on the issue of grade revision and bonus. The strike was called off late night following a meeting between company management and union leaders.
