We villagers have little water but Govt taking it away for industry miles away

Gonda Kerketta from Sundargarh district of Odisha is talking to Litu Minj who is telling us about a big meeting of mining affected people in the area. He says people here are suffering a lot due to mining. They do not have enough water for their agriculture but the water is being taken away to a factory many miles away in Rajgangpur. People are now getting together to protest this diversion of resources to rich. For more Kerketta Ji can be reached at 09938393751
