Current Affairs 2018 English: Anti-Sterlite Protest (June 1st week)
In this Current Affairs video, we have covered one of the most talked about topic and that is Anti-Sterlite Protest. It is presented by Jagranjosh team to enhance the knowledge and depth of students.
The Tamil Nadu government has ordered for the permanent closure of the controversial Sterlite Copper factory in Tuticorin, which was the centre of violent protests last week that led to the killing of 13 people and left around 100 wounded. The government order endorsed the closure direction of the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board and directed the board to seal the unit and close the plant permanently. The decision will have far-reaching economic consequences, as the unit, which met around 36 per cent of India’s copper demand, was one of India’s largest copper producers.
