On 11th September, Greenpeace activists unfurled a 50 foot banner across two trees outside the Coal Ministry at Shastri Bhawan that read ‘Ministry of Coal Scam and Forest Destruction’.

Coal mining has affected the forests including the tribal communities, and our national animal, the tiger, and also other living beings dependent on our forests.

On that day, our activists got a chance to meet Mr. Alok Perti, Advisor, Ministry of Coal. He refused to discuss the issue with our activists, and said that forests are the concern of the MOEF and not the Coal ministry. When asked questions about the current coal reserves, he just asked us to apply for RTIs
