Tharparkar Inhabitants Demand a Stop To “Poisonous” Coal Projects

The “poisonous” activities in the area related to the Thar coal extraction project drew the local inhabitants of Tharparkar together in opposition.

Tharparkar’s residents called on the government to stop and lessen the economic and environmental damage that coal mining operations and coal-based power generation cause to the region’s ecosystems in a demonstration known as Jeewanr Saanjh Rajounri.

The populace made demands of the government and coal companies to stop destroying Tharparkar’s ecosystem and subterranean aquifers. They emphasized the need for the government and coal firms to assess the harm. Which coal mining and contaminated waters have caused to local communities’ economies, ecology, and public health. And also to support renewable energy initiatives.  

Nearby communities in Goranro village formed a symbolic life chain around the location of the wastewater disposal plant.

Journalists, writers, poets, artists, and human rights and environmental activists took part in the life chain. To show support for communities that coal mining projects have violated.

The locals demand that the government protect the Thari people’s land rights. And must actively protect the Gaucher grazing land area and ensure access to clean water.

They recommended that leeching-preventing concrete dams should be constructed per worldwide best practices. Also, toxic water dams holding effluents from coal mines and power plants should moved away from populated areas.

The people and government emphasized that to save Tharparkar’s ecosystem from the devastating effects of coal use, they must implement the appropriate legislative and regulatory changes.
