Odisha: CMAS occupies non-tribal land
More than 500 members of the Chasi Mulia Adivasi Sangh (CMAS) on Sunday morning physically occupied land of non-tribal people in Bandhugaon of Koraput district, which they claimed originally belonged to their fathers and forefathers.
The CMAS members ploughed around 45 acres of arable land by hoisting red flags in Kumbhariput near Bandhugaon.
CMAS members and their sympathisers alleged that the non-tribal people had earlier encroached these lands of innocent tribals by offering them liquor.
The tribals marched with traditional weapons and encroached around 20 acres Dhusuraguda village and 12 acres of land in Tikarapada village respectively.
Three days ago, CMAS members had also re-occupied 72 acres of land in village Dasini under Bandhugaon block.
