Zindabad to the listener of Radio Sangharsh, I am Avinash Chanchal reporting straight from Jantar Mantar in Delhi where farmers are protesting against the Land Acquisition Bill. Farmers believe that this bill will take their livelihood away from them. While opposition along with Anna Hazare, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Yogendra Yadav is branding changes in the current ordinance as ‘anti-farmer’, the government claims that the new amendments will benefit farmers. The bill was tabled yesterday by the government at Rajya Sabha witnessed furor by the opposition. Farmers intend to spearhead rallies and protest on All India level if the government doesn’t take back this bill. Ekta Parishad will be organizing rally from Jantar Mantar on Thrusday. This struggle is likely to continue with a slogan “Jangal Jameen nahi chodegne, Apni maai maati nahi chodegne.
Greeting I am Vivek Goyal and welcome to Radio Sangharsh. There is a good news to the listners, one of the oldest sal forest of Aisa has been in controversy and discussion because of strong opposition from local community against coal mining. According to the Government document acquired by Greenpeace’s RTI the Mahan coal block may not be put on auction as it falls in ‘inviolate forests’. Despite getting the Stage II Forest Clarence mining has not begun in Mahan. This is the third time when the Environment Ministry has told the Coal Ministry to deny permission to mine Mahan.
The decision represents a huge victory for the people of Mahan and Greenpeace. If Mahan is inviolate, it also has implications for other blocks in the region like Chhatrasal and Dongrital. This is people’s victory!!
Have you ever heard of School with drunken teachers? If not, then visit Suhira Government School in village suhira in Singrauli, Madhya Pardesh. I have been told by the native villagers that teachers of this government school are drunk when they come for teaching. Sometimes these teachers also drink in the school premise and classrooms too. Teachers naming Tejisharan, Prajapati, Gulab Singh Gond regularly come to school in drunken state and also doing swindling in the mid day meal. Mid –day meal is suppose to be for school children but often mid day meals are cooked after school timing and when students are gone. This is not only a scam but very unethical on teacher’s part. I would request the District Magistrate to act immediately on this and save the future of those innocent children.
