NREGA: officials justify half payment saying rest is for them...

Pannalal Gamethi is a Bhil tribal boy from Udaipur. He is narrating the reality of life for them. He says I studied with great difficulty while working as a laborer and passed BA but the private school I teach does not give him full payment. In anganvadis tribal children are discriminated. Tribal women are misbehaved in shops. They get half the wages in NREGA and officials justify it by saying rest of the money is for them. Many are becoming bonded labor to pay for health and upper caste people also make us fight amongst ourselves. Pannalal Ji can be reached on 09406033089
