Addressing a huge gathering of tribals at a public meeting here organized by YSRCP, the party president Jagan Mohan Reddy said that no government can take a decision against people’s wish when it comes to bauxite mining.
Jagan Reddy said ‘whoever be the Chief Minister Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy or N.Chandrababu Naidu or even Jagan Mohan Reddy can take up bauxite mining against the wishes of the tribal people. He said that YSR proposed to take up bauxite mining but did not push for it after he realized that tribals were opposed to it. But, Chandrababu Naidu who opposed it when was in opposition was now pushing for it. He said that Chandrababu Naidu wrote a letter to the Governor that no grama sabha had supported had supported bauxite mining but his white paper says that the Jerella gram panchayat had passed a resolution supporting mining.
