30 tribal organizations have decided to take out a human chain, picket-demonstration and bike rally in Jharkhand on October 20 as part of a nationwide call to demand a tribal religion code before the national census to be held in 2021. There was a meeting in Hessel under the chairmanship of Geetashree Oraon to prepare for the program. The meeting entrusted the responsibility to Birsa Soy as the in-charge of the Kolhan division. Sushil Oraon, Kundarasi Munda, Vasudev Bhagat, Chandradev Oraon etc. were present in the meeting.
Not afraid to file a lawsuit
On the other hand, the Central Chairman of the Central Sarna Committee Phoolchand Tirkey said that the Government is not deliberately implementing the Sarna Code, so that the issue remains. October 15 Chakka Jam was a pre-announced event. The government and administration were aware of this. Despite this, to say that the agitators should file a case is to suppress the voice. Tribals are not afraid of this.
