Powerful people preparing to take forest land we are farming, alleges adivasis

My name is Sagnuram. I am calling from Karphi gram panchayat in Pratappur block of Surajpur district in Chhattisgarh. We are 70 adivasi families who are farming on forest land for more than 25 years but we have not got our land deeds under forest rights act. This year also we are cultivating rice and sugarcane etc. But we are hearing that some powerful people are planning to graze our standing crop to capture the land. We need your help. For more Sagnuram Ji can be reached at 09826820081
