Jamshedpur, Nov. 14: A day before Jharkhand Mukti Morcha proposed rally going to be held in the city on the occasion of the state�s foundation day, the look of city�s prominent public places changed with banners and posters of Jharkhand�s martyrs and freedom fighters pasted all over.
JMM leaders led preparations for the rally by arranging for widespread publicity of the event going to be organized in protest of the proposed amendments in the CNT Act and the SPT Act.
Despite the state government�s elaborate preparations for the foundation day celebrations on the same day, the proposed rally is all set to increase the district administration�s difficulties.
Sources said the JMM leaders from all the three districts of Kolhan are prepared for the rally. The rally will be held at Gopal Maidan. A large number of JMM leaders, activists and supporters are expected to attend the rally.
Party supremo and former Chief Minister Shibu Soren, his son and former CM Hemant Soren and many other party leaders will also be participating in this event being touted as an occasion for the JMM to show its power and mass support on the issue of CNT and SPT laws.
JMM has alleged that the government is trying to encroach upon the rights of Adivasis and moolvasis by trying to amend the land laws as per its own requirements.
District administration is alert in view of the proposed rally. Taking lessons from the incident of violence in Khunti on the same issues, all districts of the state have been asked to take special care and make adequate preparations for the foundation day celebrations.
JMM leaders will also be demanding formation of Gram Sabha as per PESA Act and declaration of domicile policy by the state government on the basis of the 1932 khatiyan. Sibu Soren, Hemant Soren, Champai Soren and many other party leaders will be addressing the forthcoming rally.
