The following booklet titled “Some Light on Coal Discoveries” was published on November 8, 1960, and was authored by K.V. Subrahmanyam. The article shows how politicians leverage their unbridling power and cook up facts and figures. The author mentions various false statements put out by the Ministry of Natural Reserves and Scientific Research to appease the nation. One of such hoaxes that the author emphasizes is the discovery of a new coking coalfield nearby a steel plant in Bokaro and questions if we are dealing with technical organizations who aim to find relevant facts or mere politicians who take advantage of their leadership position.
