Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS jagan Mohan Reddy took a significant decision to revoke Permissions for the Bauxite mining in the Eastern Ghats in visakhapatnam district. He announced that the controversial Government Order of 2015 (GO Ms No. 97 issued on November 5, 2015, by then Chandrababu Naidu government would be withdrawn. 


The earlier order empowered the State Mineral Development Corporation (APMDC) to mine bauxite in 1212 hectares in 13 stretches in Chintapalli and Gudem Kotha Veedhi revenue blocks in visakhapatnam district. However, the government put it in abeyance following protests by local tribals and environmentalists.


"The government is not going to lose anything by giving up bauxite mining. Peace is more important for us", jagan said while announcing scrapping of the GO at the Collectors' Conference this morning. This decision of the government has brought the cheer on the faces of millions of the Tribals living in the area.
