Though the Tamilnadu government had issued government orders to seal and close Sterlite copper factory permanently, the families of those who lost their lives in the shootouts, and those injured, are still fuming in anger. Several political outfits have voiced that the reason behind all this chaos and trouble is the TN Pollution control board, which had earlier approved the functioning of the factory.
On 22 May, the 100th day of the protest against Sterlite, 13 innocent civilians were killed by the policemen. Following this, the Kongunaadu people's national party leader ER.Eswaran has given a statement. He has said that it has become a habit to blame the ruling party, the opposition party, the protesters, cops and anti social elements to be behind the violence.
However, the main culprits here happen to be the pollution control board which had failed to monitor the treatment of industrial wastes and the let out of the wastes properly before giving prior permission. He added that a commission must be formed to inquire if the Pollution control board members did their duties properly, and that it is because of the careless and bribe filled nature of government departments that people are impacted by skin diseases, respiratory problems and cancers through the industries allowed by them.
