Gram Sabha should be supreme decision making body

Simon Tirkey from Bagicha block in Jashpur district of Chhattisgarh says Gram sabha should be the supreme decision making body. He says Jindal wants to put up a plant in their area.

He says Gram Sabhas should be the competent authority to decide the future of the people
