Worry over land acquisition in India

South Korean firm Posco is set to build a twelve million tonne steel plant in rural Orissa.

However observers say rural communities in and around the proposed plant site may be paying too high a price for industrialisation.

Farmer Ramesh Chandra Rout tells the BBC of his worries.
