Jamshedpur : JMM Municipal Committee led by Shyamal Ranjan handed a memorandum to DC demanding rights for slum areas in the city. Sonu Hembram, Jayant Choubey, Ramshakal Yadav were present. Shyamal Ranjan said that the issue of ownership rights of bastis should be solved soon.
“Power and drinking water to urban slum dwellers should be provided. This has been laid down in the clause of the lease agreement between Tata Steel and state government that they would have to provide civic amenities to slums near company township. But unfortunately, nothing happened forcing us to take up agitation,” he said.
