Hiramani Singh Gond recently got an information that a Gram-Sabha on Forest Rights Act would be constituted in 3-4 days. Hiramani says that people should be informed of such meetings at least 15 days in advance, as per the rules of M.P. State Panchayat Act. It should take place under the surveillance of video camera and in presence of the highest possible authority. Hiramani already gave an application to the SDM of Singrauli to apply all these rules and make the meeting as transparent as possible.
If the fair regulations are not applied this time, Heeramani fears that again in this meeting, some unfair means will be used like the last time (on 6th March gramsabha when fake signatures of even dead people were produced!)
Hiramani Singh is from Amelia vill. Singrauli district of Madhya Pradesh – interview by Avinash Chanchal.
Call the SDM, Singrauli – Ashish Pathak @ 07805233225 and ask for a fair Gramsabha!
