Reading Time: < 1 minute

The National Green Tribunal has ordered to re-open the Vedanta Sterlite Plant in Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu. Earlier, in May 2018, endorsing the closure direction of the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board, the state government directed the board to seal the unit and close the plant permanently, after 13 people were killed in the alleged police firing during the anti-Sterlite protests. Tamil Nadu CM Edappadi K. Palaniswami said that his Government will challenge the ruling of the NGT in the Supreme court.
