please find hindu's coverage of the cycle rally by cuddalore (tamilnadu) sipcot local community environmental monitors.

rampant pollution is what most of red tag industries bring. and coupled with this, almost zero regulation/monitoring/polluting control/error correction mechanisms/community involvement/etc make sure that disease and not jobs reign in places where these industries are located. sipcot area in cuddalore is a classic example of this.

if somebody asks you how without industries jobs will be created, you have the answer from the article.
"They say they will bring new jobs, but all they bring is new diseases," he said, pointing out that cholera, tuberculosis and asthma were now rampant in the region.
