KORAPUT: Allotments for development amounting to crores would remain unspent if the basic administrative system fails to deliver its promises at the grassroots, Jahnsi Rani of All India Khet Mazdoor Sabha said at Bandhugaon in Koraput district, while talking to the members of the delegation that had been to Bandhugaon and Narayanpatna for holding discussions with the Chasi Mulia Adivasi Sangh (CMAS) in the blocks for bringing back peace in the region.

While alleging that the State administration had failed to access to the challenges of the common men in these blocks, she highlighted different incidents where the police in addition to the officials in the civil administration had remained silent in providing security to the affected people in the region.

Expressing the salient features of the differences between the Bandhugaon unit of CMAS with that of Narayanpatna, she said that while the basic objective of both the sections was more or less to give back the tribals their lost land and freeing them from the evils of liquor, the Bandhugaon unit had believed in a peaceful movement that was needed to be carried out in favour of the tribals.
