Govt forced Kondareddy tribals from hills to develop, they got nothing in 15 yrs

My name is Dr Haneef. I am calling from Khammam district in Andhra Pradesh. Today I am talking to a person from Kondareddy tribal community. This is small community and has only 1500 families. They live on the hills. In 1997 Govt forced them to come down from the hills in the name of develpment. Though crores have been spent in the name of their development but the adivasis have not got much. They do not have decent houses even at the relocated place and have not got deeds for forest land. This situation must change. For more Dr Haneef can be reached at 09490353568
