[Summarise the case study in 50-100 words]

Conflict and vested interest on khasland are common phenomenon in rural Bangladesh due to impact of colonial exit. Landless poor are living with other land which is very painful in their life under the part of modern state. Many landless poor are living with Government khasland but distribution system does not function in favour of the poor through the link of the elites with power structure and state functionaries. Consequently, the contest of grabbing by forcing or depriving the poor illegally by the vested interest groups for Khasland often results in violent clashes and threatens human security. Basinda para Landless Poor & their Peoples Organization are established land rights on khasland through collective strength and legal fighting.
