Govt says we are not Pahadi Korwas, says Pahadi Korwa primitive tribals...

Prem Sai from Raigarh district in Chhattisgarh says there are 227 Pahadi Korwa families in his forest village Amanar but Govt does not accept them as Pahadi Korwa. They are not getting benefit of any schemes though they are living in that village from 1952. A student says Govt promises to give work to any Pahadi Korwa who has passed class 8. I have passed class 10 but Govt says I am not a Pahadi Korwa. For more Prem Ji can be reached at 09575189504
