ADILABAD: The landless poor Adivasis are migrating to Hyderabad and surrounding areas in search of livelihood even during the Covid pandemic by risking their lives from old Adilabad district.

An Adivasi couple with their three-month-old baby was seen on their way to Devarakonda to work in agriculture fields for a salary of Rs15,000 per month for the man.

 

On Saturday afternoon, Atram Jyotiram and wife Laxmi of Jainoor mandal were waiting for Krishna Express train that was scheduled to depart at 9 pm to Hyderabad from Adilabad railway station.

Atram said there were eight Adivasi families right now working in agriculture fields in the areas around Hyderabad and added that many Adivasis were working as laborers for cultivation of vegetables, Soya, cotton and red gram crops.

Jyotiram said they came to Jainoor for his wife’s delivery and now they were going back along with their male baby and added that going back to Hyderabad for work was a must for them since there was no work in Jainoor and he had no land.

 

Adivasis are migrating to various places in Maharashtra and Telangana in search of livelihood even during the Covid pandemic for their survival. Many Adivasis from Jannaram and Dandepalli areas migrated to other places in search of work or livelihood since they cannot stay idle in their villages.

It is said that landowners will pay up to Rs 300 as daily wage for the women agriculture workers around Hyderabad city.
