Jamshedpur (Jharkhand): Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren today demanded that Centre should review the mineral policy following discussion and debate on the issue.

“The capitalists are eyeing on the vast mineral deposits of the state, which is being destroyed like the oil-rich nations such as Iraq are being destroyed,” Soren, who was here to inaugurate a new building of Commercial Tax department said.

Jharkhand is a mineral-rich state but unfortunately, the people of the state are not getting the benefits of the resources, Soren said claiming that Jharkhand did not get any benefit rather lost the opportunities.

“Even if we are getting Rs 2500 crore royalty, it should be increased to Rs 3000 crores,” he said while demanding that Centre should review the policy following serious debate and discussions on the issue.
