Hyderabad, July 21 (Hydnow): YSRTP founder-president YS Sharmila today alleged that the State government was torturing the tribal women by keeping them in jails. She also alleged that the State government had not given a single acre of land to the women even after eight years.
Sharmila made these remarks during her interaction with the farmers of Kotaposhagudem village under Dandepally mandal of Mancherial district.
She said the farmers had told her about the removal of their huts from podu lands by the officials of the State government recently and added that the farmers had also told her that they had rights over 2,500 acres of the podu lands.
She said the tribal women told her that they were beaten up badly by police after removing their clothes.
Sharmila said it was cruel that the tribal farmers were not given land pattas over the podu lands although they had been cultivating it since 2002.
She alleged that the State government was harassing 52 tribal families, who are fighting for the podu lands.
She said the podu land cultivation had been going on for a long time in the district and added that the officials of the Forest department had been neglecting the cultivators of these lands for a long time.
She also alleged that some bigwigs of the State encroached upon the forest lands and sold them off. She promised the tribal families that she would fight till the podu land problems had been solved by the State government. (Hydnow)
Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
