Political parties compete for vote of India’s tribal community

Updated : February 27, 2019 09:24 PM IST

The Supreme Court of India has ordered the eviction of tribal people whose claims on forest land under the Forest Rights Act (FRA) 2006 have been rejected.
The political parties in the opposition have criticised the union government for failing to secure justice for the tribal people. Tribal groups have warned of nationwide protests.
The organisations on whose plea SC passed the order state that the order does not affect genuine claimants and it is important to ensure the protection of forests, which have been affected due to ineligible/bogus claimants under the FRA.
