Would rather die than let Bhupesh Baghel govt allow Adani to mine in Bastar: Ajit Jogi

A day after tribal villagers launched a strong protest march allocation of south Chhattisgarh’s Bailadila iron ore Deposit-13 at Kirandul in Dantewada to Adani Enterprises, former chief minister Ajit Jogi on Saturday came out in support of them. He asserted that he will not allow the state government to permit Adani to carry out mining activities in Bailadila. “I will prefer dying but will never let the Bhupesh Baghel government allow Adani to excavate iron ore mines in Bastar.

I will fight for the rights and existence of Bastar till my last breath and keep opposing the allotting of mines to Adani till the decision gets canceled”, asserted Jogi in his address at Kirandul. He lashed out at the state government alleging that Bhupesh Bhagel had earlier promised to not allow Adani to secure any mines in the state.

”But within five months (of Congress government), Adani has been given away five mines. If the CM is genuinely concerned about the welfare and rights of the tribals, the decision should be revoked”, the bureaucrat-turned-politician said.
