Is the @FinMinIndia aware that CAMPA plantations have destroyed livelihoods of tribals in the past? Is it aware that CAF act allows illegal transfer of CA funds to the forest department?@PIB_India @ShashiTharoor @Jairam_Ramesh #Covid_19lockdown #CovidAndForestRights #RepealCampa
The CAF Act violates FRA, PESA. Tribals can get employment and livelihoods only when CAMPA funds are transferred to the Gram Sabhas #RepealCAMPA #CovidAndForestRights @PIB_India @ShashiTharoor @AdivasisMatter @HansrajMeena #AtmaNirbharBharatAbhiyan @TribalStuff @VijooKrishnan
Not only the opposition-the @INCIndia , but the rules are also under fire from the @TribalAffairsIn. In a letter to the MoEFCC in March 2018, the MoTA had argued that the draft CAF rules dilute the provisions of the FRA.

What @PrakashJavdekar is saying that the amendments were an unofficial exercise cooked up by forest bureaucrats and some non-government org. like @WWFINDIA - and this unofficial draft was circulated to state governments

@PrakashJavdekar @WWFINDIA @MundaArjun @narendramodi The provision in the amendment which invited criticism was the one which allowed "forest officials to use arms against people to prevent forest offence." So a cabal of forest officers and NGOs circulate draft of a law allowing officers to shoot tribal and completely subverts FRA
@PrakashJavdekar @WWFINDIA @MundaArjun @narendramodi And send it to state governments unofficially - Question is @PrakashJavdekar ji - have you taken action against the respective officers and NGOs who have violated your trust and tried to carry out a legislative coup under your nose @nit_set @journomayank @LouDelBello @NihaMasih
