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 6. In a major develop­ment, the police convinced a sec­tion of the tribals of Jeelugumilli to give up violence for securing lands and succeeded in persuad­ing nine tribal leaders to surren­der the bow and arrow heralding a change in their attitude. 

At a meeting in Pathacheemalavarigudem, a hamlet of Darbhaguderh village on Thursday, which was attended by over 100 tribals, the leaders presented 10 bows and 40 arrows as a token of weapons surrender to the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police, Mr. P. Chandrasekhar Reddy, and the Superintendent of Police, Mr. Ravi Gupta. 

Addressing a press conference, Mr. Gupta said the police orga­nised a medical camp in Pathacheemalavarigudem where 10 doctors treated 40 tribals. Two of the tribals who had been suffering from chronic diseases were shift­ed to a hospital here by the police, who were also assured of money Tier food and medicines. Mr. Gupta said two men and one woman had been recruited as home guards to help those who were willing to reform themselves.

 According to the Superintend­ent of Police, the leaders who for­mally handed over the traditional weapons were Messrs. Nara Dharmaraju, Paddam Mutyalu, Tellam Nagulu, Pyda Chellarao, Tellam Babu Rao, Naram Veeresu, Patha Venkatesu, Tellam Mu-tyala Rao and Pandu Rama Rao. Mr. Gupta said a similar exercise would be undertaken at Datlava-rigudem and, Tapasivarigudem soon.

 He said both tribals and non-tribals were fed up with perennial strife and desired peaceful coexis­tence.

 On the land disputes, he said several tribals had complained to them and presented revenue pattas saying that in spite of having pattas land was still in the posses­sion of non- tribal farmers.

 The police had decided to take up the matter with the Revenue Department since land disputes were the chief source of unrest in the agency. Mr. Gupta said here­after protection would be given to genuine patta holders, be they tribals or non-tribals.

 The police officers held meet­ings separately with two groups and asked them not to trespass into others lands without proper ownership rights.

 He said, yesterday, the tribals had detained a dozen non-tribals, as they entered a disputed plot, but the non-tribals raised a false alarm projecting it as a case of kidnap. He said both, sides would not be allowed to take law into their hands.

 The Task Force DSP, Dr. Syam Prasad, was said to have con­vinced the tribals to abide by the law. The Sarpanch of Darbhagudem, Mr. A. Venkata Reddy, coor­dinated the programme.

 Mr. Ravi Gupta said 34 tribals were arrested during raids recent­ly on tribal villages for people wanted in old cases. In all, 24 peo­ple were held in connection with the murder of a non-tribal farmer at T. Narsapur recently.
