AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE ON THE UTILIZATION OF THE GODAVARI WATERS AND RESOURCES


 The RoFR act recognizes the dwelling site, religious places, burial grounds, village council sites along with places of MFP, water resources, biodiverisity etc and also PVT tenures. As the implementation boils down to title deeds for house sites and lands under cultivation, SAKTI engaged the Chenchu youth to document their traditional knowledge in their idiom and dialect, in encouraging them to assert as inborn foresters, capable of managing these resources as envisaged in the Act.


"Since SAKTI activities are mostly issue based and covering a large area, here we concentrate on the forest-related programmes of SAKTI for the present study."

 Girijans Loot Paddy From Fields

November 25, 1996.

Indian Express

Jangareddigudem, Nov 25: DSP J. Brahma Reddy on sunday evening recovered the 50 bags of rice the Girijans had looted from the fields of non-Girijans on saturday evening at Reddiganapavaram in Buttaigudem mandal.

The recovery of the rice was done amidst a tense atmosphere prevailing in the town from morning to evening on sunday. Even at Busarajupalem Girijans tried to harvest the crop in a field and these 60 bags of rice were recovered by the DSP.

More than a hundred Girijan women and men cut paddy in two acres from the four acres and four cents belonging to the NLS area Rytu Sangham president Gadde Lakshman Rao and carried it away in bags.

The Girijans took the rice away to their gudem without bothering about the assurance held out by Buttaigudem MRO K.V. Ramana Rao and RDO Sarada Devi that the crop would be kept in the panchayat office if the Girijans had any doubts. The officials dissuaded the Girijans in vain from the lands for whicch pattas have been issued.

Even when the police came on a complaint from Lakshman Rao, the Girijans did not relent. But on sunday DSP Brahma Reddy was successful in convincing the girijans and having them get the crop they had taken from the fields. The police have become alert with the incident in Reddiganapavaram creating a sensation in Polavaram constituency and the Girijans in the villages there too taking an example from the Reddiganapavaram Girijans.

The MLA and steering committee member Poonem Singanna Dora spoke to the Girijans on November 2 earlier warning them not to touch the patta lands. The next day joint collector M. Subrahmanyam called the Girijan leaders to the ITDA office at Kotaramachandrapuram and told them that land in Buttaigudem would be distributed as poramboke soon. He too advised the Girijans not to go the patta lands.

But the Girijans seem to be in no mood to pay heed to the officials despite the fact that the MLA has given the officials concerned documents of the land deeds. Nobody has been arrested in this case, the DSP said.

The only information the government or media always compile carefully is on Naxalite encounters, never the violations of the instruments of rule of law such as minimum wages, fifth schedule, mismanagement of forests, equity in the distribution of welfare benefits, displacement, fragmentation of Socio-economic entities etc.
