CHHATTAPUR: More than 150 utterly poor families are residing on a piece of government land beside the Parihar Crusher behind Idgah in the Gokuldham colony of the city for the past five-six years. Most of them have been making the rounds of the tehsil office for getting documents for land rights. On Tuesday, a group of the slum dwellers reached the collectorate under the leadership of youth leader Rahul Paharia and submitted a memorandum to the collector demanding land rights. They said that their pleas to the tehsildar had gone unheard. They said that despite the state government clearly announcing that no one will be evicted from his home even if he is living on government land, the tehsildar was issuing notices to the residents. They threatened to intensify their agitation if their demands were not conceded.
