DECLARE PACKAGE TO CHECK B’NGIR DISTRESS MIGRATION’
Friday, 12 December 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Noted social activist Prafulla Samantara has demanded a special package for Balangir district to end distress migration and to ensure improvement of living standard of poor distress migrants. He was speaking at a rally at Kantabanji organised by the Shramik Adhikar Manch and the Zindabad Sangathan to mark the World Human Rights Day on Wednesday.
Among others, Trilochan Pujni and Arun Mishra spoke on the issue of human rights and urged the Government to take steps to ensure human rights of distressed migrants, tribals and bonded labourers. A 16-point charter of memorandum addressed to the Chief Minister was submitted to the Kantabanji Teshildar. Later, Samantara inaugurated an office of the Sukbashi Sangha. Members of the Sangha, in the presence of advocate Bishnu Sharma and others, pointed out that even though the Sukbashis (landless people) of Balangir district have got land from the Government, till today they have not got the Final Record of Rights (RoR) due to official apathy, for which they are facing various problems.
