Dismissal of proposed amendments in forest law Congress Government - Kisan Sabha

The Chhattisgarh Kisan Sabha has opposed the proposed amendments in the Indian Forest Act by the BJP Government of the Center and said that this has exposed the anti-tribal and corporate character of the BJP government.

 

In a statement released here today, Rishi Gupta, general secretary of Kisan Sabha, said that if these amendments are accepted, then tribal rights law and Pesa law will be completely neutralized, as the proposed amendments will be given to Forest Officers To restrict the rights of people living in and to harass them, to displace them without their consent and to corporate Gives unlimited rights to delegates to forest areas. Many streams of these proposed amendments are the same as Armed Forces (Privilege) law like 22A (c), 26 (3), 29 (3), 30 (b), 34 (c), 66 (2) etc. It is clear from this that this government is declaring a war against 10 million tribals residing in forests.

 

The Kisan Sabha leader has said that the opinion of the state governments on these amendments has been sought and the Congress should dismiss the Bhupesh Baghel Government without delays. The Kisan Sabha has raised objection even at the time of the proposed amendments, as this step deprives the government of giving new opportunities to policy decisions.

 

He said that it is clear from the corporate policies which are being implemented by this government, that the real intention of the government is to entrust the affluent forest estate to the corporates and to crush every legitimate voice and movement that arises against it. The Kisan Sabha has said that the efforts of this government have been thwarted in the case of eviction from the forest and in this case it will be defeated by the mass movement. This issue will also be made into the electoral agenda in the state.
