No forest rights for Birhor primitive adivasis, Please call officers to help them...

Bhanu Patel is calling from Nuaphul village Dharmajaigarh in Raigarh district, Chhattisgarh and talking to Birhor adivasis from 3 nearby villages who say they don’t have Forest Rights. They’ve been living on forest land from many years and have submitted application forms more than thrice but didn’t get any response or receipt from the Govt. They’ve appealed to BDO but officers make them wander around and don’t give any response. You are requested to call Collector@7762222103.Bhanu@9424181437.
