Adivasis in Jharkhand close mining to protest arrest of their leader

Satendra Oraon from Chatra district of Jharkhand is telling us that adivasis of his area took out a rally today and have stopped the work in the BCL coal mines. He says BCL is cheating the local people and taking away their land and today their main demand is release of their local leader Suresh who was arrested by police who was leading their agitation against the mines. The youth and women are taking part in the agitation in a big way and they are waiting for administration to come for the talks. For more Oraon ji can be reached at 08877038597
