70% adivasis migrated to other states in search of work, NREGA not working...

Jagdish Baghel from Dindori district in Madhya Pradesh is telling us that 70% adivasis from his area have migrated to Maharashtra in search of work as there is no NREGA work in the area from last 2 years. If there is work there is no payment. He says NREGA which started in 2005 worked well till 2009 but after that it has not been able to help and all those promises of 100 days of work and payment in 15 days have been proven hollow.
