Jungle Bachao pad yatra reaches Raj Bhawan, Marandi and others lend support

Ranchi: The foot march which had started from February 20 from Hazaribagh for the protection of the forest right act reached near the Raj Bhawan here after which a memorandum was handed over to the Governor and later a public meeting was also held outside.

Addressing the people former Chief Minister Babulal Marandi said that if his party comes to power then all those schemes which
are leading to displacement would be stopped. In the name of development and construction of dam lakh hectares of land belonging to
the tribals have been taken away but unfortunately, those who have given their lands are not getting the water. He said that forest right is a central law under which tribals who live in the forest are given their rights and alleged that many irregularities have taken place in the distribution of forest pattas in Jharkhand.

He said that the decision of the supreme court itself is also surprising and alleged that the central and the state governments did not keep their stand strongly before the apex court and pointed that the government did not even have its own lawyer in the court. 

Addressing the people former MLA Gouthm Sagar Rana said that lakhs of tribals live in the forest and are dependent on it for their living and if they are displaced then the situation of the state would decline and ecological balance would also be hit therefore the central and state government should immediately intervene into it.

Former cabinet minister and senior Congress leader Geetashree Oraon said that by not keeping a lawyer in the supreme court it has been indicated that the centre and the state government are working for the corporate and said that no matter what happens the Adivasis and moolvasis will not leave the forests
