A massive eviction of tribals is taking place in the State of Andhra Pradesh from the virgin forests of Nallamala range for the exclusive benefits of *De Beers*, a diamond mining corporation that wants the kimberlite or diamonds from the forest.
But that is not the only thing De Beers is after. What De Beers is after is the buried wealth of *Vijayanagara Empire* to be hauled permanently into western fold.
The efforts of De Beers started at least 13 years ago when it was told to us that “they realized the massive diamond, gold and granite deposits in Mehaboob Nagar and Kurnool districts of Andhra Pradesh”. These deposits are spread under the thick jungles of Nallamala forests. These forests needed to be cleared first for the diamond mining or De Beers should have to resort to the latest technology called horizontal drilling under the forests.
*East India Companies* when they ruled India tried to locate these kimberlite mines and declared that they were all exhausted and thus shifted their focus to South Africa.
In South Africa they found diamonds and set up African gold and diamond mining companies under the ruthless exploitative ownership of *Oppenheimers*, who were one of the owners of the East India Companies. De Beers is also one of the East India Companies owned by these *Houses of Rhodes and Oppenheimers*.
It is these Nallamala diamond mines that were the source of the riches of all the kingdoms of India including the Vijayanagara Kingdom, which at its height sold diamonds on streets not in carats but in kilograms.
This fact was recorded by Portuguese, Russian, French and other chroniclers who had business and diplomatic ties with Vijayanagara Kingdom.
So, where are these diamonds and gold these people are talking about if these kimberlite mines were exhausted couple of hundreds of years back?
And why every central mining minster states in parliament that India has no technology to exploit these resources and that is why we have to call MNCs to do the job?
Is it only to hand over the same resources to De Beers or other companies?
Was there a tacit agreement across all political parties that for some return (read kickbacks or in normal English bribes) these non-existing or exhausted diamond and gold mines should be given only to De Beers?
