Explosive store reduced at NALCO mines due to Maoist threat

Published: June 19,2009

Bhubaneswar , June 19 In view of the Maoist threat, state-run aluminium major NALCO has drastically reduced its store of explosives for its bauxite mines in Orissa&aposs Koraput district reeling under naxal violence.

The stock of explosive materials has been reduced to one-tenth following a decision to keep only four to five days&apossupply at the magazine house of the bauxite mines at Damnjodi in Koraput, a NALCO statement said here.

As a result the booster explosives has been reduced to only 2.25 tonnes from around 21.75 tonnes a month before the Naxal attacks. Similarly, the stock of column explosives has been brought down from 10.12 tonnes to 115 tonnes and that of ammonium nitrate from 3.95 tonnes to only 070 tonnes

The step was taken as part of a strategy to minimise threat from Maoists who had attacked NALCO&aposs Panchpatmali mines on April 12 apparently to loot explosives, sources said.

The PSU has also geared up its traffic department to handle the explosives movement in an efficient manner, they said.

To augment security at the mines and refinery complex at Damanjodi, the number of CISF personnel has been increased from 417 to 682 and bullet proof jackets with helmets provided to security personnel, NALCO sources said.

Fortification of the vulnerable areas has been completed. Provision of power fencing, strengthening of watch towers and providing more high towers for the safety of the magazine area was being considered, they said.

NALCO is also exploring&aposblast free&aposmining methods.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
