Adivasis protesting Forest protection committee election fearing eviction

My name is Ramchandar. I am calling from Sonbhadra district in Uttar Pradesh. There is a forest near my village where adivasi people live. There is an election planned for Forest protection committee with help from JICA ( Japan International Co-operation Agency) which adivasis are protesting. They say JICA actually want to cut forest and put a factory and throw away adivasis. I want evryone to know about it and find a solution to the problem.
