Bastar “Mission 2016”
The Chhattisgarh government has launched ‘Mission 2016’ as trouble-free Bastar but who will it ‘trouble’ and who will it free? Isha Khandelwal, advocate and member of the Jagdalpur Legal Aid Group in Bastar, Chattisgarh, talks about the present situation in Bastar and how the state government is using the machinery of the law, judiciary and police against people in the name of the development. If anyone speaks of this, they are either killed, jailed or hounded out of Bastar. No one is safe in Bastar, no one is free.
