Jukarbhatta village is located inside a dense forest in Lanjigarh block in NorthEast division of Kalahandi. Gram Sabha of the village has claimed community forest rights over 550 acres of land. Their claims are pending before the district administration. Meanwhile, the forest department is carrying out CAMPA funded plantation of the commercial species over the land claimed by the Gram Sabha, without any consensus or discussion with the community. This led to a conflict between the forest department and Gram Sabha. People from the community allege that forest officials are threatening them. The Gram Sabha is now exploring the legal ways to fight the battle.
