About two decades ago, people of Muslim, Koli, Jogi and Rana communities settled on a piece of land in Jhalana area of Jaipur. Gradually ,they built their houses there. Recently, Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) said these 59 families are encroaching on government property and served notices to them to vacate the land. On August2, 2017, when the government when to demolish these houses, a conflict broke out. The families allegedly pelted stones on the government workers, while they demolished houses. Meanwhile, People's Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL), an NGO, came out in support of these families and demanded that they cannot be evicted without a rehabilitation plan. These families are living under tents now. The government claims to have rehabilitated them.
