People had also grievances that their opinion had not been taken before a decision was taken to establish the second crematorium .
|Do you consider this an environmental justice success? Was environmental justice served?:||No|
|Briefly explain:||People of the area wanted the crematorium to be shifted elsewhere. They are protesting in this issue since long. While protesting during the inauguration some of the protestors were beaten up by the minister. However, the minister, denied the allegation as baseless and political conspiracy against the development. According to the protestors minister should not act so sharply to the agitators rather he should invite local people for a dialog for an amicable solution for the problem. Earlier, the Minister had assured that the electric crematorium will not lead to pollution as it will not generate fly ash. However, people are skeptical about the assurance .|
