COAL POLLUTION 1

Living next to three smoky chimneys of the Anpara Thermal Power Plant, 50-year-old Rajkumar Devi connects the dots that led her to her ills. “See, I got blood cancer right from the time the plant started coming up. By the time it had been built, my kidney problems had also begun. I spend Rs 9000 for 30 tablets from PGI every month.”
— Rajkmar Devi, 50, Anapara town, bordering Anpara Thermal Power plant.
