Tribes Compelled to eat 'Chakbar' leaf due to starvation
This tribal family of Bahuaar village has eighteen family members. They have only one Red card. The family got only 35 K.g food grains through the Red card. This is a landless family. Chirujia has four sons, five daughters, two daughter- in-laws, five grand sons and her husband. Only 35 K.g ration from Red card is not sufficient enough to meet their hunger. As Femine relief work is not in Process, they are jobless. According to Locals, if the Femine relief work is not start immediately, more poor people will have the same fate. The poor tribes took Chakbar leaf and Mahua lath due to lack of food grain, fifty years before. After 'Green Revolution' we thought we are self-dependent. But we can't ignore our poor tribal community; those are compelled to eat 'Chakbar' leaf to meet their hunger. District Administration should take it seriously.
