First they destroyed farming, Now Mining is all over, We're all unemployed...

Kaira Munda from Thakurani village in Balani Panchayat in Joda block of Kendujhar district in Odisha says in his Mundari language agriculture started reducing since mining started in this area in 1918. By 1990 all the agriculture stopped in the area. But by 2005 mining started closing and today only one mine is working. People here have become unemployed. They neither have mining nor agriculture.
