Adivasis start agitation to protest land grab and false arrests by forest dept...

Dhruv bhai from Mandla in MP is telling us that he had raised the issue of arrest of 6 Baiga adivasis on this forum and also after lots of movement on the street Collector and SP had visited the region but they have not taken any action yet and the adivasis still remain in jail. This is an example of Forest dept taking the land of adivasis by force and putting false cases against them. They are restarting their agitation today. For more Dhruvji can be reached at 09165430619
