On 22nd and 23rd March 2015 was the protest campaign against the Neterhat Field Firing Range.
Around sixty thousand people participated in this campaign. Tribals have witnessed their massive unity by spending a day and night under the open sky in order to protect their life and land.
Many religious women, men, other likeminded, and committed volunteers showed their solidarity in this massive movement and shared their knowledge on Government polices and issues.
For two days whole area resounded with the slogan
!tku nasxsa tehu ugh nsaxsa! (We are ready to give life not land!)
!ty] taxy tehu gekjk gS! (Water, Forests and land are ours!)
iwoZtksa dh tehu er ywVks!( (Don’t take away our ancestors land!)
This protest campaign will continue till the de-notification of the Pilot Project Neterhat Field Firing Rang.
This is notified by the Bihar Government in the year 1992. Since then people are protesting .
The project period is up-to 11 May 2022.
This Pilot Project is one of the massive distraction and displacement of our tribal’s.
It consists of an executive, led by the Governor of Bihar, a judiciary and legislative branches.
Like other states in India, the head of state of Bihar is the Governor, appointed by the President of India on the advice of the central government.
His or her post is largely ceremonial. The Chief Minister is the head of government and is vested with most of the executive powers. Patna is the capital of Bihar.
The Patna High Court, located in Patna, has jurisdiction over the whole state.
