Ranchi, Oct 19: Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda Friday announced the constitution of a Displacement Commission to look into the grievances of displaced people.
“We will soon constitute a Displacement Commission to look into the grievances of the displaced and ensure social security for them. The displaced people will be able to lodge complaints before the commission and the commission will look into the complaints,” said Munda to reporters during his Johar (gratitude) Yatra in Chaibasa Friday.
“The Jharkhand government is not in favour of any projects at the cost of the state’s people. People displaced by roads, irrigation, industries and other projects should get compensation, social security and other things,” he added.
More than 20 lakh people have been displaced in the state over the years for steel, mining, irrigation and other industrial projects.
