The Karnataka Government has been strongly criticised after a group of women carried out a nude protest against them. 

To evict the Adivasis from the foothills of the Western Ghats in Kodagu, the government carried out a surprise demolition on their houses. 577 tribal families have been protesting about this move for the past seven days, but the government has not responded to them. Upset by the callous attitude, the women carried out a nude protest. 

After the news of nude protest spread, the government held a series of meetings with the tribal people over the last four days and promised to relocate them, as reported by News 18. They have demanded reservation for relocation and have expressed their wish to be allowed to stay.

Many other organisations like Janapara Horata Samiti have supported this protest. Srimane Nagaraj from Janpara Horata Samiti said that the land occupied by tribals cannot be considered forest area as there are cement roads and coffee estates.

MR Seetharam, Charge Minister of Kodagu District,  said that there were only 199 families before and all of a sudden the number has increased to 577. They have ordered the officials to register people with valid documents.

They are not allowing anybody to stay in that area because it is illegal to live in the forest area as per Supreme Court judgement.

The officials have shortlisted places for tribals to relocate which are not far away from where they live now. They have requested the tribals to accept any one location from the list of options, and the process will take three months to finish.
