- Medha Patkar seeks land rights for farmers
KEONJHAR: Social activist Medha Patkar on Sunday demanded land rights for farmers to protect their farms from being acquired for industrialization.
"We want land rights not acquisition. Like forest dwellers, farmers must also have rights on their land so that they are not taken away forcibly from anyone," said Patkar while attending an anti-land acquisition meeting at Silisuan village near Keonjhar town. The meeting was organized by Sterlite Birodhi Mancha (SBM).
"There is a conspiracy at the national and the internationals to help companies to grab cultivated and forest land for industries and mines. No one can live with eating money or iron ore. We all need to eat food for our survival and this food comes from cultivation. Hence the government should protect cultivated land," she added.
