Situation of Birhor primitive tribals has not changed since independence

Raju Kumar from Chatra district in Jharkhand says his district is home to many Birhor primitive tribals. Govt is running special welfare schemes for Birhor from the days of independence but the situation of Birhors has not improved. The projects are run by insensitive officials and there is no political leadership in Birhors. Mainstream leaders are not interested in their development. This situation should change.

It will be better to use crores spent on Durga Puja on welfare of poor people...

Raju Kumar from Chatra in Jharkhand is telling us about the Durga Puja celebration in his district. He says lakhs have been spend in each pandal and this way crores have been spent on this festival in this district. This looks all well but if you look at the poor people around then it looks all waste. It would have been better if these croses have been spent on welfare of the poor people rather than putting up lights and flags for festivities. For more Raju Ji can be reached at 09430313721

After Govt has raised the diesel prices the transportation cost has gone up many folds and it is becoming difficult for farmers to use buses any more.
