Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (JVM) leader in Assembly and general secretary, Pradeep Yadav, is leading the movement againt Adani Group’s proposed 1,600 megawatt power plant in Godda. Yadav warned that any forcible eviction of locals from the area or attempt to grab their land in the name of development,  would only further intensify protests against the Adani power plant.

AICC National Spokesperson Dr. Ajoy Kumar demanded cancellation and immediate inquiry on the land allocation made to the Adani group for a power plant that is slated to come up in Godda, Jharkhand.

Kumar alleged that Jharkhand state government is ignoring all guidelines to benefit corporates and industrialists.

In last six months, the government has been acting as an agent of these corporates, Kumar said.

He also said village land owners have been continuously protesting against the power plant, and the government has to shift the proposed plant due to strong protests by villagers in Paraspani in Pathargama Block. The proposed 1600 MW power plant would be disastrous for the environment, including extraction of ground water, and would be flouting all fixed environmental norms.

“The policy says that IPPs that have entered into MoU for setting up thermal power plant in the state and supply of power to the state under first right of refusal limited to 25 per cent of the installed capacity at price to be decided by Jharkhand State Regulatory Commission (JSERC). Ratio of the energy supplied at fixed and variable rates has also been determined and applicable to one and all,” said Kumar.
