Non-tribals illegally taken tribal land for mining in Gujarat, Complaint dont help

Bilal Qagzi says he met people from Pokhran Village of Sohangarh Taluk in Gujarat where some people have started stone quarries in the village on the land that belongs to the tribals. The blasts from stone quarries release powder and stones which have damaged the crops. He says some Parsi has acquired a lease for 99 years for the land that belongs to the tribals, which is illegal, and this has taken away the primary source of livelhood away from the tribals. He reports even after making numerous complaints at different platforms the authorities have not taken any action to shut down the quarry. For more Bilal Ji can be reached at 09429507017
