Tribals give bandh call on August 15 for land rights - The Times of India

Tribals give bandh call on August 15 for land rights - The Times of India: "SURAT: It is tribals vs non-tribals in the tribal hinterland of south Gujarat, mainly in Bharuch, Narmada, Surat and Dang districts. For the first time, the tribal organizations under the aegis of Gujarat Adivas Hitrakshak Samiti (GAHS) have raised their voice to oust non-tribals from government and private lands owned by the tribals.

Tribal leaders associated with GAHS have given a bandh call in all the 42 talukas of Gujarat dominated by the adivasis starting from Sabarkantha to Dharampur on the Independence Day to draw the state government's attention over the tribal land rights."
