Caption : CPI (M) politburo member B.V. RAGHAVULU looking at the bauxite pellets, which were extracted in the early 70s as part of a survey at Galikonda hills, about 110 km from Visakhapatnam, where mining is to be taken up by the Andhra Pradesh Mining Development Corporation with technical support from Jindal group to supply raw material for an alumina plant coming up near Visakhapatnam. The alumina project will displace 4,182 tribal families belonging to 147 hamlets in Visakhapatnam district. Mr. RAGHAVULU visits the tribal areas as part of preparation for 'Girijana Garjana' -- a 10-day padayatra beginning May 20 against the bauxite mining project.
