Deprived of basic amenities, Kerala tribals in hope of development

Development is still a farfetched dream for residents of remote tribal villages of Avanipara in Kerala's Pathanamthitta as they still lack basic amenities. Proper roads, clean water and sanitation system remain poor in the village. Monsoon season adds to their woes as water cluttering in villages invite issues. Locals eagerly await Government's attention. A total of Rs 7524.87 crore was allocated to the Ministry of Tribal Affairs in 2021-22 budget.
