Increasing air pollution in the coal-rich district has led to increasing threat of accidents. The coal dust hinders the drivers’ vision leading to accidents. District police report stated that 249 accidents cases were reported in 2013. While 98 persons died, 133 were seriously injured.

Jharsuguda has been placed at the eighth position among critically polluted districts of India. According to a survey, the district also tops in the State in spreading pollution. The measures taken by the district administration have failed to solve the problem.

Brajrajnagar MLA Anup Sai along with his supporters staged a protest on NH-49 on Thursday, demanding measures to check pollution levels. The stir was called off after Sub-Collector assured of taking corrective measures.
