Demand to cancel lease of coal blocks in Hazaribagh area of Jharkhand

My name in Deepak Das. I am calling from Karnapur Bachao Sangharsh Samilti in Hazaribagh in Jharkhand. I want to tell you about our one day protest demanding cancellation of 32 coal blocks to private companies in Karnapura area. These blocks were given between 2004 and 07 but none have been able to start work due to protest of people who do not want to give their land. People demanded that because they have not started their work in stipulated time their allocations should be cancelled as per law. For more Deepak Ji can be reached at 07250982162
