Chandrakesh Kumar Saket (Village Bandhaura) is speaking about acquisition of land by Mahaan Coal Ltd. He says that the company is taking over villages and surrounding forests of Amelia, Budher, Khanua, Suhira. Bandhora’s forest also is being taken away by Essar, but the village gets left out.
Chandrakesh says if the companies succeed to take over all these forests for mining, what would happen to the people’s livelihood (that is totally dependent on the forests), where will the cattle go for grazing? He doesn’t want to give Mahan forest to companies.
