The first point of memorandum blames State Government for improper and inadequate execution of Forest Right Act, the tribal demanded surveys to be done and then lands belonging to tribal shall be handed over to them. They also said that there are cases of forced acquisition of lands by some officials of forest and police department, which is unlawful.
