Ramakant Tiwari, Mahan Coal Limited

Mahan Coal Limited's response

It has been noticed that some persons and institutions having vested interests are publishing misguiding and misleading statements in relation to Mahan Coal Limited, and are thereby provoking villagers and other people under the pretext of environment and tribal rights...We strongly condemn continuous misrepresentation of facts by some persons and institutions having vested interests; and misguiding and misleading the villagers and general public by them. Such actions not only delay the Project but also prevent the villagers from getting their legitimate benefits and compensation. Further, it also stalls the economic development of the country and hampers public purpose. Mahan Coal Limited remains committed to sustainable development of Mahan coal block, in a safe and socially responsible manner.
