Gram Sabhas also have the right to take action against the sale of liquor: CM
CM Shivraj said that till now we used to collect forest produce and Vanopaj Sangh or Traders Association used to buy forest produce, fix the rates. Now you will collect forest produce within the limits of your respective villages and the rate will be decided by the gram sabha. If there is a liquor shop, school, hospital or dharamshala, the gram sabha will have the right to recommend its removal to the government. Gram Sabhas will also have the right to take action against the sale of illegal liquor in village shops.
PESA Act is not against non-tribal siblings
In the conference, CM Shivraj said that my brothers and sisters, PESA Act has been implemented in the state. It is in the interest of tribal brothers and sisters, not against non-tribal brothers and sisters. This is an act to empower the tribal brothers. Under the PESA Act, land for development works or any project can be taken only through gram sabhas. If the Gram Sabha refuses, then that land cannot be acquired.
Some insidious people marry their daughter and get tribal land registered in their name: CM
The CM said that under the PESA Act, every year the Patwari will have to fill the map of the forest area and the land of the village along with a copy of the measles and complete details in the middle of the gram sabha, so that someone’s land does not get transferred to someone else’s name by fraud. Now this exploitation will not happen under the rule of maternal uncle and BJP. If someone has given a loan in excess of the prescribed interest or without a license, then he will not be able to get the loan recovered. His debt will be forgiven. I am also warning you. Some insidious people get the tribal land registered in their name by marrying their daughter, then contest elections and also try to convert. There is a need to be careful with such people. If the government has to take any mineral lease, sand, soil, ballast and stone from the scheduled area, then it will conduct the survey only when the villagers and the gram sabha give permission.
The gram sabha will decide the cost of plucking tendu leaf and selling it: CM
CM Shivraj said that the BJP government has made ponds in every village. The management of these ponds will be done by the Gram Sabhas. The gram sabha will decide whether fish farming will take place in the pond and the amount received from it will be given to the gram sabha. Now, if the gram sabhas wish, they can fix the task of plucking tendu leaves and its sale price. The people of the village and the gram sabhas will now also decide the use of the amount coming for the development of the villages. Now, before taking the laborers from the villages, the person taking them will have to introduce himself to the Gram Sabha and tell where the laborers are being taken, so that we can help them if they are in trouble. Krantisurya Tantya Mama’s sacrifice is on December 4th. On December 3, these yatras will reach Tantya Mama’s work place and on December 4, another big meeting on PESA will be held in Indore.
