Mangaluru, Dec 29, 2014 : The Jokatte Nagarika Horata Samithi has charged MPRL of filing false cases against nearly 17 leaders of the Samithi for the sole reason that they were spearheading the agitation against the Coke and Sulphur units of MRPL.
Speaking to reporters here, BS Hussain, a leader of the Samithi accused MRPL of using the Police Department to curb the agitation through such false cases. He said the MRPL has flouted all rules by releasing effluents of the plants to water sources and by spilling coke powder on the road while transportation.
He also regretted the fact that the district administration has so far not taken serious note of the problems.
Samithi leaders PV Rao, Muneer Katipalla and others were present.
