Urgent Action Alert against the unlawful and forceful land acquisition for POSCO

The callous and unaccountable Naveen government has shown it’s yet another dirty face today when the police force quietly entered Polang village in Jagatsingpur district of Odisha at wee hours to acquire land for handing over to the POSCO Company. Prior to this game-plan, the state government had informed to the media that there would be no acquision of land on 18th May 2011. Now it’s confirmed that the state government was lying to the people of the state and create a ambience of confusion for smooth acquisition and hand over of land to the said Multinational Company (MNCs). The inference: in order to protect the interest of the MNCs, the state government could play treachery with its own people who voted it to power.
