Jharkhand Industry and Tribal Welfare Minister, Champai Soren on Wednesday said he was contemplating to set up a land commission for ST/SC people for speedy disposal of pending land related cases.
"We are contemplating to form an ST/SC Land Commission in the state to facilitate speedy disposal of land-related cases involving ST/SC people," Soren told newsmen in Jamshedpur.
Soren said he would soon discuss it with Chief Minister Hemant Soren to give the proposal a concrete shape. He said he would soon write a letter to Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren in this regard.
Soren regretted that hundreds of cases were pending in the court for years across the state and the poor tribals were unable to afford to fight the lengthy legal battle.
