Naxal activities affect mining of new iron reserve
July 6, 2012
Bhilai, July 06 (ANI): The Bhilai Steel Plant in Chhattisgarh is one of the biggest in the country. It is facing the brunt of Naxal violence. The 53-year-old steel plant, which is running out of iron ore supplies, is mining new reserves in Rowghat and constructing a 235-km railway line to transport the iron ore to the plant. However, the Naxals who are opposing mining in Rowghat are carrying out attacks on workers engaged in construction of the new railway line. Rowghat is estimated to have 510 million tonnes of iron ore reserves, sufficient to keep the plant running for decades. The new railway line for supplying the iron ore will pass through Maoist affected districts such as Balod, Kanker, Narayanpur, Kondangaon and Jagdalpur.
