Labour Struggle in Bhilai 1990-2004 (Chattisgarh Mukti Morcha)
About this collection
On November 1st 2000, the state of Chattisgarh was carved out of the predominantly tribal areas of Madhya Pradesh. The Chattisgarh Mukti Morcha was among the first to voice the demand for a state of Chattisgarh. Chattisgarh Mukti Morcha founded by Shankar Guha Niyogi had however raised a demand not for a ?separate Chhattisgarh? but a new Chhattisgarh for a new India?. The total population of this newly created State, Chattisgarh, is 20,795,956 as per the provisional results of the Census of India 2001. The state is rich in minerals such as iron ore, coal, limestone, tin, dolomite, quartzite, uranium and bauxite. In fact the exploitation of these mineral deposits has formed the cornerstone of industrialisation in the region.
