Urgent need to adopt an effective policy for mineral development
If there is any legal obstacle in allocating the blocks to private sector, those should be immediately given to the public sector companies like Coal India Ltd. If that is prevented by any stay order or other such obstacle by the firms whose allotments have been cancelled, that should be overcome by ordnance and acts of the Parliament.
If the acts of the Parliament are prevented by the opposition, it must be widely publicized to expose the corrupt obstructionist politicians.
Similar is the case with many other minerals which are being imported at a huge cost.
Development of alternative energy resources must be speeded up taking bold decisions, including import of solar panels and wind turbines from any country, so that import of fossil fuels is minimized. more
*A most interesting book every library should have and all must read.
Author has lived in Canada. Canada and Marshall McLuhan figure a lot in the
book. 'Machine shall do for man what Man could not do for himself'.It is no
mere utopia. May happen anytime a la McLuhan! A trenchant satire on
Western-style democracy as it prevails in India today.Fact and fiction
entwine and abrase to sharpen the edge of satire.Regards,Dr.Usha Sharma*
