Andhra dont accept us migrated Chhattisgarh adivasis as adivasis, Pls help

My name is Sushma. I am an adivasi girl from Chhattisgarh. My family was forced to come to Andhra due to Naxal threat. I study in class 11 but Govt of Andhra does not accept us as adivasis so I am forced to study in private college. We dont have drinking water and are falling ill. Here we made cultivable land after cutting forest but locals have snatched them from us. We are forced to do coolie work for survival. For more Sushma can be reached at 9912424306
