Cong blames mishandling by Orissa govt for Posco fiasco

Congress today alleged Orissa government has failed to handle the situation arising out of the protests against land acquisition for several mega projects in the state.



New Delhi: Congress today alleged Orissa
government has failed to handle the situation arising out of
the protests against land acquisition for several mega
projects in the state.

"The manner in which Orissa government has handled the
situation leaves much to be desired," party spokesman Manish
Tewari told reporters here.

He said the issue of land acquisition for
industrialisation had to be handled with sensitivity.

Opposition parties and organisations of Orissa had
yesterday condemned the police action against villagers
opposing the steel plant proposed by South Korean major Posco
in Jagatsinghpur district.

To a question on the economic blockade in Manipur, the
spokesman said government was seized of the matter and its
seriousness.

He said the Chief Minister of the state Ibobi Singh was
in Delhi recently and had detailed discussion with the highest
echelons of the government.

Tewari hoped the impasse in Manipur would end at the
earliest.
