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."

ELURU, JAN. 29. The Kovvur Dy. S.P., Mr. D. Narsing Rao, and three oth­ers were hurt when tribals at­tacked a police party at Cheguntapalli near Polavaram on Saturday for raiding their village and arresting a few on the charge of gambling. The Tallapudi Sub-Inspector, Mr. Muralikrishna, the jeep driver, Mr. Mariadas, and a constable, Mr. Ramu, were injured in the attack along with the Dy. S.P. The tribals detained a Sub-Inspec­tor and three constables after the incident. They released them in the night following an assurance from the revenue authorities.

According to reports, a team of policemen consisting of four Sis and 20 constables, led by Mr. Narsing Rao, raided the village around noon today to check gam­bling and cock-fight. At Chegunta­palli, the police came across a - group of people playing cards and noticed a few fowls. As the police were returning with the arrested, tribals including women blocked the way by placing logs and at­tacked the police with sticks after throwing chilli powder.

The Dy.S.P and a constable sus­tained head injuries while two oth­ers were hurt in the face and hands. The police left behind two vehicles and returned with the in­jured. The tribals detained the Sub-Inspector, Mr. Raja Rao, and the three constables demanding an assurance from the revenue au­thorities that no case would be m booked against them for the incident. They demanded the pres­ence of MRO or RDO to negotiate the release of the policemen. The MRO proceeded to the village to hold discussions with the tribals. The RDO, Mr. Sridhar, was camp­ing at Polavaram.

The DIG, Mr. P. Chandrasekhara Reddy, who monitored the situation from here as the Superintendent of Police, Mr. Ravi Gupta was away, said two VAOs and the MRO, Mr. Bhaskara Choudary had pro­ceeded to the village to negotiate with the tribals. According to him, the police party raided the gam­bling den near Cheguntapalli and seized a few fowls and a liquor container. When the police tried to arrest the people responsible for the sport, they attacked the police­men. The police party was said to have refrained from using force to avoid a major confrontation. Many of the villagers were said to have been in inebriated condition.

According to the tribals, the po­lice had beaten up a handicapped tribal youth while raiding the vil­lage, which angered the villagers.
