of allegations swirling around in villages.
According to local reports, some Dalits and tribals of the region have alleged that they were made to hold

Ramvati, a tribal, said: “I was given wheat flour,
, pulses and 1kg each of onion and potato, but when the ration kit was given, I was asked to hold prayers.”
