  • In 2008, she protested along with the farmers in her hometown Manuguru, Bhadradri Kothagudem, Telangana. The protest was against Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL), a government-owned coal mining firm. They were protesting for fair compensation for their lands which were acquired for mining purposes by SCCL. In an interview, while talking about the protest, she said,

    It all began in 2008 when SCCL acquired 1454 acres of land from the farmers through the revenue department, promising compensation of a total of Rs. 108 crores as per the then land value fixed by the state government. But 11 years on, many of these farmers are yet to receive the money.”

    She shared that her family has also suffered as their lands were also included in the SCCL project. She said,

    I have a personal interest in getting these farmers their rights. My family too had to give up 2.65 acres of our land to SCCL for this project. It’s common knowledge here that the farmers have not been compensated fairly. whatever little compensation some have received is far less than what they should have gotten after the government revised the Land Acquisition Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act in 2013. So, this fight for justice has been going on for a while now with the farmers and landowners doing the rounds of the sarkari offices in the hope that they will get their money back. Recently, my mother got to know that the authorities are finally distributing compensatory cheques, so she rushed here from Hyderabad.”

    She added,

    My mother was staying here alone with no one to help her. One night, she slipped and fell, and eventually succumbed to a head injury. I was in the US at the time and flew back as soon as I got news of her death. I believe that I lost my mother only because of this case that has been stuck in an endless loop. I asked my father to accompany me back to Hyderabad, but he refused saying he won’t leave the town until he gets the compensation for which my mother lost her life. That is when I decided to join the protesting farmers and fight for what we deserve.”
