Coal mining has only done harm to locals, We've decided to do mining ourselves now...

All the coal companies and electricity producers who came here over the years have worked only for their own benefit and have destroyed the lives of local farmers and adivasis like me says a farmer in 5th Coal Satyagraha in Raigarh Chhattisgarh to Rajendra Gupta. He says now we have decided to do mining ourselves and will do mining in such a way that it helps all the farmers and locals. This is the second day of Satyagraha and Gupta says he will keep reporting live from ground. Rajendra Gupta@9993891275
