Our ancestors were brought by forest dept in 20s, Now they burn our houses...

My name is Krishna. I am calling from Bilawalnagar village in Mohamdi Tahsil in Lakhimpur Kheri district in UP. Our ancestors were brought to this region by forest department from eastern India in 1920s for plantation work in Pilibhit district. In 1970s our village was washed away due to flood in Sharda river and we were shifted to this village. Forest department has been attacking our village since then and have burnt our houses many times. You are requested to call SDM at 09454416468 and DM at 09454417558 to help us according to Forest Rights Act. For more Krishna Ji can be reached at 08765645996
