Gram Sabha said No but Govt ordering people to give land to Coal mining...

Savita Rath is calling from Dharmajaigarh in Raigarh district in Chhattisgarh where locals are protesting against a Govt order giving land to Vedanta/Balco for a coal mine. People say this is a 5th schedule area and Govt can’t take any land without permission of Gram Sabha which has rejected the offer. She says if mining comes here people will loose their ancestral land and livelihood and it will also destroy lots of forest. Savita@7869234650
