Queensland Parliament backs Adani’s eco-unfriendly coal mine project
Indian mining giant Adani’s plan to build one of the world’s largest coal mines in Australia got a major boost on Tuesday with Queensland’s Parliament declaring that “all state government approvals” be given to the 21.7 billion dollars controversy-hit project. The Queensland Parliament has supported moves to approve Adani’s Carmichael Mine project in the Galilee Basin, Mines Minister Anthony Lynham said. Lynham said his government has been working with Adani to get the 21.7 billion dollars coalmine project off the ground. He said the Parliament backed a motion today that “all state government approvals be provided to help create jobs in north and central Queensland”.
