Forest dept harasses us, Worked in NREGA, No payment...

Prithvipal Singh Tekam from Katni district in Madhya Pradesh is telling us about problems in his village. He says many adivasis were arrested for farming on an old dried up pond on forest land though all legal procedures have been followed by the panchayat. Though they have been released on bail but need to go to court. He says apart from harassment from forest department they also do not have clean drinking water and have not got wages for NREGA work they did in 2011.
