No one thinks or writes about districts like Gadchiroli and Chandrapur that have large tribal populations. The tribal regions in these districts are mainly underdeveloped, lacking basic facilities like healthcare. There are other issues: lack of roads, medieval menstrual practices, forcible land acquisition, non-payment of health workers, malnutrition… So, who’s fighting for the tribals in these regions? Bodhi Ramteke (left) and Deepak Chatap (right) of PATH, an NGO that uses Constitutional tools like public interest litigations and environment interest litigations to help tribals, speak to All Indians Matter.
