Ajit Jogi Demand Enquiry in Breaking of Balco Rakhar Dam

Jogi claimed that the dam was full of dust generated by the Balco plant and the company had no other source to dump the further dust it had generated furtherwards. Hence, during heavy rain in the region, the company officials conspired and pilfered the whole dust into the river by breaking the dam from various places. He also demanded from both company and the related government authorities to make the places used by the company to dump its dust be made public.
