KHAMMAM: After the demand for a separate Telangana, it is now the turn of Gondwana, a seperate state for the tribals.

Demanding that the tribal areas extending from Adilabad to Srikakulam be carved out into a Gondwana state, the tribals on Monday took out a massive rally and held a public meeting at Bhadrachalam.

Tribal leaders like Adivasi Girijana Samkshema Parishad founder-president Sonde Veeraiah slammed the Government for watering down the 1/70 Tribal Land Act and ignoring the recommendations of JM Girglani and Murthy Commissions. He said inspite of the 1/70 Act, nontribals were encroaching lands in Bhadrachalam, Sarapaka, Manuguru, Illendu, Kothagudem, Paloancha, Dammapet and Aswaraopet and were resorting to real estate business.

He demanded that the Government implement the High Court orders on 1/70 Act, which had directed the Government to take possession of the tribal lands alienated by non-tribals in contravention of the Act.

CPI-ML (New Democracy) leader and All India Rythu Coolie Sangham state general secretary K Ranga Reddy wanted rights for the tribals on forest lands. Adivasi Samkshema Parishad state president Datla Nageswara Rao, secretary Payam Rama Rao, district leaders Atram Navin, Sunnam Venkataramana and others also spoke.

  1. Yes, We want Gondwana State,while merging princely states in indian unions ex.garh mandla, baster , chanda etc not given any royalty to those gond princely states nor carving gondwana state n even gondi language was not in the 8th schedule of indian costitution, thus gonds were being neglected n left backward stil. Thats why gonds are demanding for separate state within the indian union.
    Jai Gondwana
