Adivasis fighting land grab are branded as Maoists in Odisha, alleges leader

Gananath Patra adviser to Chasi Muliya Adibasi Sangh in Koraput Odisha says their movement is fighting land grab and liquor sale and have no connection with Maoists. The movement was able to get some land back for adivasis from outsiders but Govt is putting CMAS leaders in jail by calling them Maoists. He says I was in jail for 2 years and hundreds of adivasis are still there. Govt should be talking to us instead if they want to solve the problems.
