Govt ignoring Gram Sabhas: Maha Gram Sabha on 7th April

Blasius Tigga from Surguja Chhattisgarh says whole of Surguja district is under 5th schedule of Indian constitution and no land can be taken here without consultation with Gram Sabhas. But administration is continuously ignoring Gram Sabhas. I have reported in the past about breaking of houses of 6 Oraon tribals last week against the advise of Gram Sabha. To protest all this we are organising a Maha Gram Sabha on 7th April in front of collector office in Ambikapur. For more please contact Blasius ji at 09406367804
