FacebookStumbleUponGoogle+TwitterEmail

Hardayal Singh shares the state of his village, Amelia where there are no communication mediums available, like Television, Radio etc., and is a sheer lack of educational facilities. This has resulted in a state of major illiteracy in the region.  A significant portion of the population consists of tribal, who are unaware of their rights due to illiteracy. The mining companies are taking advantage of this situation and forcefully grabbing their land to fulfill their agenda. People are perplexed as they don’t even know what to do and who to approach to stop this land grabbing. Hardayal appeals to the audience of Radio Sangharsh for support and guidance to solve the pressing problems and looming injustice on the people in his village.

The villagers have appealed to the Gram Panchayat many times, but nothing has ever changed. Interviewer: Virendra Singh.
