SEEKING JUSTICE:Police taking activists of the Girijana Vidyarthi Samaikya into custody during the dharna programme in Anantapur on Monday.
Anantapur: Activists of the Girijana Vidyarthi Samaikya (GVS) staged a dharna here on Monday urging the government to solve their long pending demands.
The list of demands out forth by the Girijana Vidyarthi Samaikya activists included solving the acute drinking water problems in the city, establishment of more primary schools, Anganwadi Kendras, and primary health centres for the Scheduled Tribes in all tribal villages in the district.
Founder-president of Girijana Vidyarthi Samaikya V. Sankar Naik sought infrastructure facilities like laying of black top roads, electricity, and transport facility to Girijan thandas.
Surplus lands should be distributed to the tribals; he said and added that 6.6 per cent of the general budget should be allocated for tribal welfare. The police, however, foiled the dharna bid and took several GVS activists into custody.
