Chief Secy briefs NCST on jobs to tribals displaced by RSP
New Delhi: Odisha Chief Secretary Aditya Padhi on Tuesday met the National Commission for Scheduled Tribe (NCST) chairperson Nand Kumar Sai in New Delhi and apprised him of steps taken to rehabilitate families displaced by the Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP).
Tribal people displaced by RSP had earlier lodged a complaint with the Commission about denial of jobs to them as promised. Out of hundreds of tribals displaced with the promise of jobs in RSP, as many as 163 tribals had knocked the doors of the NCST alleging that they were denied jobs by the RSP officials.
Following the allegation of the displaced people, the NCST had probed into the matter and found that RSP did not provide authentic job details of the displaced persons, mostly tribal people.
