Kanha: Foresters using illegal monetary inducement, threat to evict adivasis

Darbu Singh Uike from Balaghat in Madhya Pradesh is telling us about villages inside Kanha National Park. He says according to Forest Rights Act of 2006 Govt can not remove adivasis by force from the national parks but they are using inducement of Rs 1 lakh to families who are leaving the park. They are also threatening others who are not leaving the park. Villagers are angry and are preparing to oppose this illegal act. For more Uike Ji can be reached at 09406751188
