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.
