“On Sept 5, 2014, in village Dongri, thana Langadhol, Singrauli, a JP official has got a hole dug and placed coal in it to show the government officers that the coal mining is operational. After his saying so, the Tribals from Dhongri and Bhisaguda reacted strongly and asked the officer how come JP had ‘started mining coal’ when villagers didn’t get any jobs, plot, compensation! Some people started saying that the higher officials have accepted money and are getting wrong things done or giving clearances. The laws are not being followed by anyone. Some people were insultingly saying that the laws are made only for poor people. Everyone gives a hearing to rich people and only God listens to the poor.
