Dhenkanal (7/6)- Today, an emergency meeting of the CESC Mahimagadi Loser-Citizen Forum was held at Chhatia. All Project hit villagers threatened for Mega Agitation against dubious behaviour of the owner.
This has happened because yesterday one team of the company led by the GM told Mr.Jayakrushna Naik of Chhatia, Mr. Sikar Naik of Bandhanuagaon & Mr. Mayadhar Rout of Durgaprasad, that the District Collector has called for a meeting of the villagers on 7th June,i.e. today, for settlement of the compensation for K-Form Pattas & Debodattar Lands occupied by the Tribal & Schedule Castes for more than last hundred years.
Mr.Jayakrushna Naik of Chhatia asked the company authorities to give the Collector’s letter. The officials failed to give that letter. This creates doubt among the people. Hence, they immediately contacted the Convener & great farmer leader Er. Debashisha Hota, Today’s urgent meeting was called according to Hota’s advice.
From the meeting place Hota contacted the ADM Mr. Babaji Charan Das, the Sub-Collector Mr. Pradeep Kumar Sahany & the Land Acquisition Officer Mr. Saroj Kumar Behera. All of them denied of the said meeting. The Gondia Tahasildar Mr. Arun Kumar Behera hasn’t picked up the mobile, hence can’t be contacted.
We demanded a 3-Party-Discussions comprising of Ours CESC Mahimagadi Loser-Citizen Forum with CESC Power Pvt. Ltd. Owner and the Representation from the Government as the Mediator, during our Mega Rally on last 21st May.
We blame strongly this type of dubious attitude of the company officials. We want that the company should organize a Grand Meeting of the affected people very shortly at Chhatia Tribal Sahi, the Forum decided.
But, prior to that, the collector has to issue Written Letter to our leader Mr. Hota & make announcements in all over the area. The Electronic & Print Media should be informed. Otherwise, we’ll intensify our agitation. The owner of the company will be responsible for any type of mishap, all the villagers threatened.
