Live report from demonstration in front of NMDC demanding jobs to locals...

Mangal Kunjam is calling from Dantewada district in Chhattisgarh where thousands of villagers and members of All India Trade Union Congress and Communist Party of India are demonstrating against National Mineral Development Corp today. In 50 years the company has employed very few locals and waste is dumped on fields causing great damage to adivasis. A memorandum was submitted to reserve jobs for locals and save environment.
