Jamshedpur 15th Nov 2021: State Health Minister and Jamshedpur West MLA Banna Gupta seem to be angry with the Tata Steel management these days.
In a veiled warning at a press conference at Circuit House, Jamshedpur, the minister said that the corporate sector should follow the rules and regulations of the land and there are means to force the company to abide by norms while highlighting several lapses on the part of the company.
The minister said that thousands of acres of government land has been given at a nominal fee, due to which the company is earning crores and billions.
Giving example, he said that according to reports, the government has given about 2206 acres of Schedule 3 land to the company at the rate of Rs 2 per acre annually, instead of this, a provision has been made in the lease agreement that the company provides facilities to the citizens living here free of cost. But the company is now charging arbitrary fees on it on various grounds.
Despite this, Banna Gupta also raised the issue of Jubilee Park gate, which was closed for several days, adding that the work was being done for commercial purposes and even trees were planted in one acre of land in the Domuhani area of Sonari.
He said that a letter has been written to the East Singhbhum district administration seeking details of the company’s CSR expenditure.
Banna Gupta said that the sanitation situation in the city has become very bad, and garbage can be seen everywhere, especially along Marine Drive, and claimed that some executives of the company are sabotaging JN Tata’s dreams.
He warned the officials that if the sanitation situation in the city did not improve, he would first pick up the garbage and place it in front of the JUSCO office and the houses of JUSCO officials.
