Bhojlal Netam in his statement said that in the present critical condition, it is a major task before all the responsible democratic forces to wage a struggle to save land, livelihood and environment. The present fascist government is bent upon selling the whole country to the corporate forces which is a great threat to all the people of the country and the poor illiterate and innocent tribal people living inside the forests are at greater risk as they are unaware of the anti-people policies of the government which give full freedom to the corporate and multinationals to loot and plunder the water, land and forests of the country. Following the trend of snatching lands of poor people, the BJP government of Chhattisgarh has also put forward the Land Revenue Amendment act which is again a treachery against the innocent people of Chhattisgarh. For the time being this act has been put on hold by the government but yet it has not been lawfully taken back by the government. The tribal people and democratic forces of the state are continuously fighting and opposing this anti-people decision of the state government. He made an appeal to all the progressive and likeminded forces to make the first national conference of ABM successful.
