From a proud land owner to a peon, story of an adivasi and Reliance Power...

My name is Jacob John. Few days back I heard the story of Coal satyagraha on Swara and I am in full support and today I want to tell you story of a man called Rajmohan Basod whom I met recently in a similar coal mine area in Singrauli where Reliance is building their power plant. Mr Basod had a beautiful life at the bank of a river with 4 and half acre land and his family. He got only Rs 3 lakh as compensation because officers said his land is not irrigated though he took loan to install moters from bank. Today he works as a peon in Reliance. What is this? Is anybody listening? For more Mr John can be reached at 09039424639
