Company came, Took our land, School closed, Children turned child labor...

My name is Santoshi Devi. I am from Ghurma Markundi in Robertsganj, Sonbhadra district UP. Displacement is a big issue for us. We used to have Govt school here but when JP cement company came here it not only bulldozed out crop and house, Govt school also got closed. JP private school needs Rs 1200. We adivasis dont have that much money and 10,000 of our children have turned into child labor and roaming around here and there. SantoshiJi@09450161801
