Jamshedpur, March 15: Yuva JD(U) workers headed by its state president Dr. Pavan Pandey protested before the East Singhbum DC office in support of their 9-point charter of demands including rehabilitation of people evicted during anti-encroachment drive and a domicile policy in the state. The agitation was a part of a state-wide protest.
The protesters handed over the memorandum to DC Dr. Amitabh Kaushal addressed to the Governor Draupadi Murmu.
Speaking on the occasion, Pavan Pandey said a large segment of the population of Jamshedpur is living in 86 bustees (urban slums) for years and on the pretext of ownership they have been made fool till now.
“Now they are living in fear as they would also be removed in anti-encroachment drive. In the name of anti-encroachment drive several poor families are being crushed but neither the government nor the district administration has made arrangement for its rehabilitation.
The current state government led by BJP is working just opposite to the promises made before the polls and is showing indifferent behavior towards the youths of the state which is increasing the unemployment level in Jharkhand’.
He added, ‘the absence of domicile policy is making the people suffer in getting jobs. Errors in ration cards are affecting the distribution and the poor of the state are not getting the grains,” he said.
Vijayvasini Pandey, Umesh Singh, Jyoti Soy, Jitendra Dubey, Rajiv Ojha, Geeta devi, Pushpa Devi, Reeta Singh and hundreds of party workers were present on the occasion.
