COAL IS A SCAM.
We must stop the Government from cutting down giant areas of forest in Central India to get the coal that lies beneath.
What’s at stake:
About 35% of the country’s 1700 wild tigers are in Central India. Thousands of communities depend on these forests. Cutting down forests and burning coal will release large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. This will heat up the atmosphere and threaten all life on Earth.
If that’s not enough, a coal scam larger than the 2G scam has come to light. The CAG report says that coal blocks were allocated at a throw-away price costing the taxpayer Rs 1.86 lakh crores (an earlier leaked version of the report pegged the total loss at 10.67 lakh crores).
Ask the PM to stop all new coal allocations and forest clearances until coal scam has been investigated and there is a clear demarcation of areas that shouldn’t be mined.
