Suresh Barsagare is reporting from Gadchiroli, Maharashtra in Hindi and Marathi about the protest against proposed mining in Surjagarh hills of Etapalli tehsil. He says this region is rich in minerals and is also the abode of the Thakur Dev. This entire region falls under the Schedule 5 of the Indian Constitution and is also considered holy by the adivasis of this region. The livelihood of these people depend on the forest resources but now a breach of regulations have allowed Lloyd company to have the iron mine on lease. The graam sabha and the social activist groups of this region are all united in protest against this move.The adivasis of this region are fearful that this move might affect their lives. Protest marches were organised against this problem and a demonstration is on in-front of the collector’s office from 5th January but the collector didn’t reply till date

All the coal companies and electricity producers who came here over the years have worked only for their own benefit and have destroyed the lives of local farmers and adivasis like me says a farmer in 5th Coal Satyagraha in Raigarh Chhattisgarh to Rajendra Gupta. He says now we have decided to do mining ourselves and will do mining in such a way that it helps all the farmers and locals. This is the second day of Satyagraha and Gupta says he will keep reporting live from ground. Rajendra Gupta@9993891275

Rajendra Gupta is reporting live from Coal Satyagraha in Gare village in Tamnar block of Raigarh district in Chhattisgarh. He says this is 5th Coal Satyagraha and he helps us listen to the main demands o the meeting which says Govt is saying more than 100,000 ton of coal is lying after being excavated and there is no buyer for electricity also so why is Govt not bringing a moratorium on coal mining and continue to destroy forest and people’s lives. They should first compensate the people before more mining. Gupta@9993891275
