The Dhamra port in Orissa is not only threatening the Olive Ridley sea turtles, it is also being constructed on forest land without permission from the Central government.
Based on letters issued by its own officials, a case was filed against the Ministry of Environment and Forest and the Orissa government in October last year for violating the Forest Conservation Act, 1980. Till now neither have filed a response before the Supreme Courtâs Central Empowered Committee.
Greenpeace is taking a petition asking environment minister Jairam Ramesh to take a stand and the violation of the Forest Conservation Act.
I have already signed this petition. You can also sign it and ensure that Jairam Ramesh takes necessary action.
