Staff Reporter

BERHAMPUR: Activists of the tribal organisation, Lok Sangram Manch took out a rally in the city on Friday afternoon in protest against the killings at Nandigram in West Bengal.

They burnt an effigy of West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattachrya at the new bus stand.

Later, the activists marched to the office of the Revenue Divisional Commissioner (RDC), southern range. At the RDC office the tribal activists handed over a memorandum addressed to the President through the RDC. Leaders of the Manch Raghunath Padhi and Santosh Mallik led the rally.

Land reforms

According to Manch leader Bhala Chadra Sadangi, they have urged the President to take immediate steps to check recent laws made for the land acquirement for the SEZS. Apart from it they also expressed that there was urgent need for land reforms in the country as in the name of industrialization, the tribals and Harijans were being made scapegoats, he said.

Lok Sangram Manch activists also criticised the Naveen Patnaik Government for resorting to forcible land acquisition for industrial houses in the State which led to incidents like Kalinganagar killings.
