Nature and tribal welfare takes a back seat during the elections in the Nilgiris

Fair and transparent Implementation of FRA, jobs, health and education are the main issues for the Adivasi communities in the region.
The local residents also point out that lack of a viable minimum support price was pushing tea growers to sell their plantations to builders leading to a concretisation of the landscape and increased conflict with wildlife.
