    Vedanta is BJP's largest donor. AIADMK is BJP's friend with benefits. But citizens get screwed.

    Oh he wanted to creat jobs ...!! At what cost ? Our future , environment or our health? He only meant to make profit for himself , making a few jobs to shut some mouth, he didn't care about jobs , He is behaving like British People did. He is doing more harm than good. I am with the protesters , they are doing the right thing

    Now,a large number of people went out of employment,who and how they will be compensated? It should have taken advice from foreign environmentalists.

    Anil Agarwal is playing with few words job creation, indian economy development. But reality Vedanta is a number one 420 company in India.
