5 years on : Mohla dam evictees still struglng for compensation

Bhan Sahu from Rajnandgaon in Chhattisgarh says it is 5 years since Mohla dam was built but evicted people are still running from pillar to post for their compensation. In November when they did a dharna officials have given them an assurance that all payments will be done before new year and dharna was withdrawn. But the officials have paid only a few influential people by now and rest adivasis are still struggling to get money for their own land. Bhan Ji at 09406033089
