— Steel company Arcelor-Mittal plans to make its own water arrangements for its proposed steel plant in eastern Indian’s Orissa state. It also will provide water to farmers during the dry season.

The move by the steel company comes as tribal people and farmers in the area have launched a campaign against diversion of water from Hirakud dam to industries.
