New Delhi, Aug 25: Vedanta Resources is not quitting from India, in spite of the fact that government rejected to give clearance to its bauxite mining project in Orissa, said Vedanta Aluminium official on Tuesday, Aug 24.

The official said, "the company is not frustrated and is not leaving India despite the setback."

Chief Minister of Orissa, Naveen Patnaik also expressed his disgrace over Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh's rejection of clearance to Vedanta's mining project.
