Blasting in Colamb mine

According to the reports received from Milagrine Antao in Colamb Fomento mining company carried on blasting of explosives inside the Hiralal Khodidas mine yesterday April 20, 2010 at around 9.00 am. It may be noted that blasting inside the mine is banned by law.

In order to confuse people of the village about the blast the sound of the machinery is increased in volume and blast carried on when sound pitched at higher level.

In the meanwhile Milagrine Antao complained about the fuel pump installed few meters away from her paddy fields would have disastrous effects on her and other people's agricultural fields nearby. The fuel pump is being used to fill diesel for the mining trucks plying on Fomento mine form 5.30 am in the morning there by disrupting life of the villagers.
