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."

By Our Staff Reporter 

ELURU, MAY 20. The National Hu-pan Rights Commission (NHRC) issued notices to the State and Central Governments asking them to present a report on the delay in recognizing Nayaks and Telaga Pamula communities in Andhra Pradesh as scheduled tribes. 

Passing an order on the petition field by social activist, Dr. P Pulla Rao, on behalf of the two commu­nities, the NHRC gave 15 days' time to the Chief Secretary of Andhra Pradesh and the Secretary Ministry of Tribal Affairs, for re­sponse.

 In his petition, Dr. Pulla Rao contended that Nayaks had a large Population in West Godavari and Miammam districts. The Navaks of Khammam district were classified into scheduled tribes and enjoyed all the statutory and constituently benefits while the same status was denied to Nayaiks of neighbouring West Godavari district.  

In the case of Telaga Pamula, Dr. Pulla Rao pleaded before tjie NHRC that the community was none other than the Yerukalas 'of scheduled   tribes.   About   3000 people of Telaga Pamula, which lived on the railway land in Akiveedu, were being referred so by the local people. In fact, Telaga Pamulas intermarried with Yeru­kalas. He said a section of Yeruka­las, a former criminal tribe, migrated to some other areas to escape constant harassment and named themselves Telaga Pamulas. 

On the directions of the Government of India, the Anthropological Survey of India conducted a study on Telaga Pamulas in 1999 and established the similarities between the two groups.

The candidate has chosen a topical subject, very relevant to our thinking on culture, cognition and language. He has red widely and is familiar with the literature that matters. His linguistic and anthropological reasoning is sound. His language is clear and simple.

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.
