I am Vidhya Chanran Mishra from Village Suhira, Post Karsualal, Tehsil Mada, District Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh. I have worked Essar Power in Badhora, Singrauli for six months and left in distress. Though my working hours were eight hours per day but I regularly worked for twelve hours and I was paid around 6,000 on the basis of eight hours. I have never been paid overtime. I have raised this issue and also given in writing seeking my compensation for extra time but it’s of no use. As evidence, I have the photocopy of the gate pass which can establish the number of hours that I had put in at work. They also exploit their workers by paying less money than the government fixed standard. The workers are paid Rs 150-160 for 8 hours where in the government fixed wage is Rs 300 for 8 hours. This is my request and appeal to the listeners of Radio Sangharsh, that this project must be shut down and proper wage compensation has to be made to all the workers.

Lallu Prasad Shah from Village Suhira, Post Karsualal, Tehsil Mada, District Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh; Its shocking to see how the Sarpanch and the Secretary are making money out of people’s hunger. It’s found that our Sarpanch and Secretary are selling the allotted food and oil in black. At times they do even use it for their own consumption, leaving the poor villagers in distress and helpless. The food grains and oil are allotted to the locals by the government at a subsidised rate and such scandal is causing chaos among us. Hence, I am requesting the listener of Radio Sangharsh to help us raising this with the higher authorities.

I am Jagnarayan Shah from Village Amelia, Post Karsualal, Tehsil Mada, Districit Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh, and I have been an active member of Mahan Sabgharsh Samiti. Since past four years, Mahan Sangharsh Samiti’s has been fighting to save our jal, jagal, jameen to secure the livelihood. Our constant fight to save our pristine forest has resulted in the de-allocation of the Mahan coal block. MSS has been fighting for over four years to implement the Community Forest Right. Finally the incessant hard work had paid off and Independence day, the Community Forest Right has been passed in Gramshabha with full majority. Henceforth, before using the natural resources for commercial use a prior permission needs to be taken with Gram Sabha. It is an important victory for us and we hope that MSS will continue to work to save our forest and right.
I am Jagnarayan Shah from village Amelia, Post Karsualal, tehsil Mada, District Singrauli. Independence, freedom of speech is my fundamental and constitutional right and by muzzling dissent, this government is violating my right to express. In the world’s largest democracy, if government mutilates its citizen’s voice, then it is the death of democracy. This is my earnest request to the listeners of Radio Sangharsh to stand together in solidarity for freedom of speech and expression. Together we can and we will restore the faith in democracy.
Kripanath yadav (Village Amelia, Post karsualal, tehsil Mada, Dist- singrauli, Madhya Pradesh)
The struggle of liberty and freedom was not an easy path for our freedom fighters; many lost their lives in this freedom movement. I take immense pride in saying that we the people of Mahan Sangharsh Samiti also fought the similar battle against the foreign companies to restore our forest, our livelihood. Despite the constant crackdown from the local as well as government administration, we continued with our ground fight to save our pristine forests. Many of us went to jail, suffered but never lost hope to fight and restore our democratic right.
Coming 15th August, India will mark 69th year of its independence and I feel immensely sad to see how the government is violating right of freedom of speech and expression. It’s our fundamental and constitutional right. In democracy like India, freedom of speech, dissent and expression is the strength of its citizens. If the government fails to secure this fundamental right of its own citizen, then we will oppose the government. In democracy, people should get equal opportunity to speak and express.

Healthy environment is the sign of a healthy nation. Greenpeace India is a credible organization working towards to preserve and save our pristine forests and providing sustainable energy solution. The recent clampdown by the Ministry of Home Affairs on Greenpeace India by blocking its bank accounts and suspending its registration is appalling. I request to Home Minister Rajnath Singh to revoke this order so that Greenpeace can continue to work for our environment.

I am Jagnarayan Shah and a member of Mahan Sangharsh Samiti (Village Amelia, Post Karsualal, Tehsil mada, Dist- Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh) Mahan Sangharsh Samiti is fighting for saving the livelihood of people and human rights. On January 2015 Priya Pillai was invited by the British Parliamentarian to talk about her work in Mahan but she was offloaded by government officials at Delhi International airport. On March 12, Delhi High Court quashed the Look Out Circular issued on Priya. High Court also directed the authorities to expunge the Offload stamp from her passport and remove her name from all database. Judge Rajiv Sakdar pronounced judgement in favor of Priya Pillai and said “you cannot muzzle dissent in a democracy”. Mahan Sangharsh Samiti welcome this judgment. Mahan Sangharsh samiti believe that fight for truth and civil rights can never be defeated. It is a big victory for us and for the people of this country. We are requesting the listeners of Radio Sangharsh to put pressure on the government for save the rights of people of Mahan.

Greetings to the listners of Radio Sangharsh. I am Akhlesh Kumar Sharma from village Suhira, post karsualal, Tehsil Mada, Dist Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh. Road is not only a necessity but also an important element for the development. One such necessity of road is at ward no 14. With the construction of this road, around 200 household will be benefited. But because of RamSagar Sharma there is so much of delay in the construction. It is very difficult to list our problems with the district administration because of his good connections and relation with the administration we lack to register it even as a complaint. Hence, I request the listeners to provide us support and clear our path.

Greetings to the listeners of Radio Sangharsh. In the landmark judgement by the Delhi High Court reinstated the faith of its citizens in democracy. Delhi High Court quashed the look out circular issued against the Greenpeace Activist Priya Pillai. The high court also directed the authorities to expunge endorsements made while offloading Priya from a flight to London by immigration officials on January 11. In the judgement court also stated that “you cannot muzzle dissent in a democracy”. The government failed to provide any evidence to substantiate its claim that Priya was working against the national interest. It was argued by the senior advocate Indira Jaisingh, who appeared for Priya that the Look out circular was issued without any authority of law. Jaisingh also said that it was a great day for India. The right to dissent has been raised to the level of constitutional right.
It is a great moment for Greenpeace India, welcoming the court’s decision as a vindication of the group’s legitimacy and validity of its campaigns for the rights of people to their land and forests, for clean energy, a health environment and to hold corporations and the government accountable. Priya said that “we are relieved that the court has cracked down on this undemocratic abuse of power by the government. Big win for people who dare to have a different dream of development which may not coincide with the dream of the government.”
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.
