Member of Parliament (MP), Dhanbad, PN Singh on Sunday strongly condemned the notice served to remove the dwellings of poor people in Shivpuri Colony near the Bokaro Steel Plant (BSL), marking it as inhuman and unfair.
The estate officer of BSL had on Thursday issued a show cause notice to those living in about 200 dwelling units, in a locality situated in the northwest Garga Dam catchment area on NH-23, asking them to remove their hutments by June 30.
A group of poor people living in the hutments met the MP and apprised him of the situation.

It is irrelevant on their part, and BSL is not coming up with any venture on that land,” said the MP.
The MP also raised concern over the BSL plant running without a CEO for the past seven months said he will talk to union steel minister, Dharmender Pradhan asking to fill the post soon.
