“Big Setback For Vedanta” Said This Popular TV Anchor !! Got Thrashed

Madras High court ordered Sterlite copper plant in Thoothukudi to remain closed on Tuesday and the political leaders of all the parties welcomed the decision of the court. Resident of the villages around the plant who have been protesting against the plant for over two decades, finally had their sigh of relief. The voices against the Vedanta-owned copper smelter strengthened after the police firing that took place in the year 2018.

From MDMK leader Vaiko to MNM leader Kamal Haasan, almost all the political party leaders welcomed the verdict by posting tweets and giving press meets. On February 27, 2019, Vedanta approached the high court seeking to re open Sterlite, which was closed in view of an order passed by the Tamil nadu pollution control board dated May 23, 2018.

Sterlite Copper CEO Pankaj Kumar said that she was disappointed at the Madras high court’s verdict. “The verdict comes as an utter shock to the employees of Sterlite Copper and the thousands of small businesses, entrepreneurs and community members dependent on our continued operations” said Pankaj Kumar in his statement.

Advocate General Vijay Narayan and senior counsel CS Vaidyanathan who represented the state government and TNPCB, opposed the pleas of Vedanta by terming that Sterline as a “chronic” defaulter and that unrestrained pollution appears to be standard modus operandi of the company, as it has been found guilty of various violations across globe”.

Amidst all the reactions from political personalities, popular TV anchor Sumanth Raman who is very much active in social media platforms , posted a tweet saying that it is a set back for Vedanta. “Big setback for #Vedanta . With Madras HC refusing to allow #Sterlite to reopen the action will now move to Supreme Court.” he wrote in his tweet only to get slammed by his own followers for not thinking about the people residing there.
