Govt not giving any community rights under Forest Rights Act in Chhattisgarh

My name is Chandra Pratap Singh. Today I am visiting village Pandripani in Gourela block of Bilaspur district in Chhattisgarh where head of Village forest protecton committee tells me that Govt is giving individual forest rights but not to community. He says if we can save our forest then only our future generations will survive. You are requested to help to fight for community forest rights. For more Mr Singh can be reached at 08823051477
