Nagpur, Nov 16, 2016: There is no reason found in displacing thousands of Adivasis from their native lands because these places belong to them more. Satish Pendam, President of Adivasi Mulniwasi Adhikar Parishad said that the state government should provide separate land for Adivasis. He said this during a tribal rally at Old Morris College ground, Dhantoli.

The rally was held in honour of freedom fighter Birsa Munda, to celebrate his 141st birth anniversary. Self-Respect Movement, Birsa Brigade, Unique Society for Social Justice and Adivasi Bachao Andolan jointly hosted the rally, mentioned TOI.
