Sub:- Dangers to our houses due to “FOMENTO MINES”.


This is to bring to your kind attention that one of the mines operating in Advalpal village lease owned by Lithoferro had blocked the natural nallah/drainage; as a result they are pumping out the rainwater from the pit and let it flow from other nallah which flows from backsides of our houses.

It is also to be noted that all the flashes of the mine have collapsed and therefore, a disaster is anticipated, which is likely to repeat the case of 2000 in which mining reject gushed down into our locality damaging houses at midnight.

Hence in the light of above, our protest against the mines operating at Advalpal has been proved right.

You are therefore requested to conduct a site inspection as early as possible to avoid serious casualties. A case under 133 Cr. Pc. is also pending before Dy. Collector’s Court.

Thanking you,

Yours truly,
(Shamsunder P. Naik)
