Jharkhand CM Warns Against BJP's Alleged Threat to Tribal Rights and Land

Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Champai Soren, on Saturday, issued a strong statement alleging that the BJP poses a threat to tribal communities by seeking to exploit their land and displace them from forest and coal-rich regions if not stopped in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing the state assembly's concluding session, amidst the walk-out of BJP legislators, CM Soren emphasized the need to resist the BJP's attempts to undermine tribal rights by amending existing laws. He highlighted the coalition government's commitment to safeguarding tribal interests in the face of such challenges.

Speaker Rabindra Nath Mahto adjourned the seven-day budget session, which commenced on February 23, sine die, following the passage of four bills including the International University Bill, 2024, on the session's final day.

Reflecting on the achievements of the government, Speaker Mahto noted the passage of a budget totaling ₹1,28,900 crore for the fiscal year 2024-25, setting ambitious targets to propel Jharkhand towards a ₹10 lakh crore economy by 2029-30.

CM Soren condemned the BJP's amendments to laws protecting tribal rights, accusing the party of undermining the power of gram sabhas and seeking to alter legislation such as the Coal Bearing Areas (Acquisition and Development) Act and Chotanagpur Tenancy Act.

Expressing concern over the BJP's purported agenda, CM Soren urged ruling alliance legislators to mobilize public awareness against the party's intentions, highlighting the strategic implications of its policies for tribal communities.

Furthermore, he asserted that former Chief Minister Hemant Soren's incarceration on land-related charges was a deliberate tactic employed by the BJP to suppress dissent, emphasizing the need to confront such tactics head-on.

Underlining the coalition government's commitment to socio-economic development, CM Soren reiterated the administration's focus on ensuring food, clothing, and shelter for all citizens, as part of its efforts to strengthen the state's education and welfare systems.
