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."

KHAMMAM, NOV. 7:

In a strong verbal attack on minister for Major Irrigation Tummala Nageswara Rao, the CPM; today accused the minister of "creating a divide among tribals in the district which only resulted in yesterday's clash at Malkarm."

 In a joint statement lhere, CPM district secretariat members Singu Narsimha Rao and TS Prasad, district committee member VL Narsimha Rao condemned the incident in which several tribal and non-tribal people were injured lCastigating the non-tribals for attacking the tribals, they said it was a premediatted conspiracy by the non-tribals landlordes against the tribals who were only guarding government surplus lands from being encroached upon. They alleged that the minister had of late been indulging in creting rifts within the tribal community for his own political ends. 

They said the minster only wnts to see the sensitive issue flare up again so that sensitive issue flare up again sothat he could in therefore and see that some government land is distributed among the tribal. It was once again proved that Tummala NageswaraRao, by trying to distribute land, would only try to boost up his image in neighboring districts as th esaviour of tribals, they said.

 The CPM leaders appealed to the tribal to be wary of he minister's guiles and not to fall in his trap. They exhorted them to stay united and scuttle the ruling party and the minister's moves to hijack the issue for their benefit. 

CBI PROBEE SOUGHT OVER DINNER ROW:

The CPM district committee demanded a detailed investigation by CBI into the 'wild boar dinner' allegations invlving Tummala Nageswara Rao. Stating that about 17 types of wild annimal meat was cooked and served for all the guests and top officials including Lok Sabha Speaker GMC Balayogi and five other State ministers during a dinner hosted by eh minister on October 13, they asked the government to hand over the issue to he Central investigating agency for bringing the facts to light.

 The incident which occurred on the occasion of a grand fluctuation to the minster had not only amounts to gross violation of Wild Life Protection Act besides resulting in massive scale misuse of public money, they felt.
