Ranchi: Jharkhand Dishom party head Salkhan Murmu is on an indefinite fast from October 2 near Raj Bhavan in support of a charter of demands including protection of tribal land and restricting "outsiders" settling in the state.

"My supporters and I are on indefinite hunger strike to demand protection of land in Ranchi district’s Nagari village under Chota Nagpur Tenancy Act, restriction on outstation population by bringing in an act and prevention of displacement and migration, besides other demands," the former MP said on Thursday.

Murmu, who was one of the tribal leaders who had led the pro-domicile agitation in 2002, has been demanding to shift the proposed setting up of educational infrastructure from Nagri to any other barren land.
