Dainik Bhaskar

The Regional Common Land Protection Committee and the Rural Awareness Society, Bhilwara have demanded to start a campaign to free the grazing lands of the encroachments through a memorandum presented to the Tehsildar. Submitting the memorandum to the Tehsildar, a group of social activists represented by Bhanvar Meghvanshi, said that some people have encroached upon grazing lands in many villages including Kartha and Bagjana. In these regions the grazing lands have not even been demarcated so far. This has only encouraged the encroachers to seize upon land worth crores of rupees, he said. The memorandum draws on the Supreme Court order which seeks to evict encroachers from all grazing lands by the 30th of June. Despite Chief Minister himself giving an assurance in this regard, the administration has remained indifferent to this issue in the region.
