Ranchi, September 21, 2016: Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Sep 20 claimed those involved ‘in conversions’ of tribals were behind protests against the state government’s attempt to make an amendment in the Chhotanagpur Tenancy Act (CNTA) and the Santhal Pargana Tenancy Act (SPTA).

The amendments would allow the state government to take over tribal land for development purposes. The amendments would also allow tribals to give their land for commercial development which was prohibited earlier.

“There are parties that do not want tribals to progress; they want the tribals to remain poor, with no electricity. We are planning to bring development and progress however those involved in conversions are opposed to this as they want the tribals to remain in the state that they are. If people remain poor, they can be easily converted,” said Raghubar Das while speaking to ET.

When asked as who were involved in these conversions, Das said, “Everyone knows who is involved in this conversion, I don’t need to say it.”
