Diddalli: 5-month-long protest by tribals ends 6.5.2017 Deccan Herald - District
The series of protests by tribals, who were displaced by the authorities at Diddalli for the last five months, concluded on Saturday. High drama was witnessed at Diddalli here on Saturday, when a woman tribal leader climbed a tree demanding rehabilitation at the disputed site inside Devamacchi reserve forest. GKMutthamma, who has been leading the protest after tribals cleared from the forest land refused to accede to the decision of district administration, climbed the tree and also warned of killing herself. As a precautionary measure, the police personnel led by the district superintendent, the Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) platoons and the District Armed Reserve (DAR) platoons had tightened the security in Diddalli. When the protesters refused to vacate, the forest officials and police personnel tried to forcibly send them out of the forest. Virajpet MLA K G Bopaiah who arrived on the spot, however, held a lengthy discussion with the tribal leaders and protesting tribals and convinced them to ...

Diddalli row: Tribal leaders divided over rehabilitation 29.4.2017 Deccan Herald - District
A day after the row relating to Diddalli tribals appeared to near end, tribal leaders were a divided lot. On Saturday, affected tribals were yet to decide on moving to the sites identified by the district administration. Tribal leaders GKMutthamma and GKAppaji fulminated both the activists and district administration for taking them for a ride. "Some of the activists are trying to divert the cause by themselves sending Swamy and Anita as representatives to the meeting chaired by DeputyCommissioner Richard Vincent D'Souza at his office on Friday," Mutthamma alleged. "Nirvanappa, who is a self-declared convener of Bhoomi Matthu Vasati Hakku Vanchitara Horata Samiti, is also trying to mislead tribals, while advocate A KSubbaiah has asked the tribals to go by district administration's words," the leaders said. The duo vouched to take the issue to none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with a delegation of displaced tribals, seeking his help in rehabilitating tribals at the Devamucchi forest area ...

Diddalli tribals agree to shift to new locations 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - News
In what appears to be a truce, the five-month-long protest of Diddalli tribals ended with the displaced 528 tribals agreeing to abide by the words of the district administration. The apparent truce followed the tough stance taken by Revenue Minister Kagodu Thimmappa, who took stock of the situation by visiting the disputed site at Devamucchi forest in the district recently. The minister, who had alleged a political conspiracy behind the contentious issue, had refused firmly to rehabilitate the tribals in the forest area. Kagodu had, instead, instructed the tribals to relocate to sites identified at three places in Virajpet and Somwarpet taluk in the district. Change of stand Intermittent rainfall, accompanied by winds and lightning, also had smoothened the hard stand of the tribals, who were forced to spend days make-shift tents with rainwater seeping in. Buoyed by this, Deputy Commissioner Richard Vincent D'Souza has also promised to distribute title deeds within a week to the beneficiary tribals for ...

Tribals will get back sites, if Diddalli was paisari land: Kagodu 15.4.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Revenue Minister Kagodu Thimmappa has declared that in case the records reveal that the Diddalli land belonged to the Forest Department, the government cannot rehabilitate tribals at the same place. "If it was not a reserve forest, then all the 577 families will be rehabilitated at Diddalli. If it is, however, a forest land, then the government is committed to give three-acre land to each families in the place that is acceptable to the tribals," said the minister.
