Tribals Allege Forcible Eviction from Ancestral Land Near Statue of Unity, Guj Govt Rubbishes Claim
| Tuesday | 22nd October, 2019
"The state government had promised that for every person evicted, seven would be given jobs.
Tribals are not against the Statue of Unity but are protesting illegal land acquisition in the name of tourism.
Tribals must be given jobs if the government wants to acquire their lands," said Jadeja.
Tribals claimed projects near the Statue of Unity were affecting 8,000 persons from Navagam, Kevadiya, Gora, Limbdi, Vagadiya and Kothi, and alleged that government had not paid compensation.
Vasava said 70 tribal youth had been given jobs as guides at the 'jungle safari' established near the memorial.
