Nalgonda: The Chenchu tribals who live in small huts in the forest areas have been completely unaware about the prestigious double bedroom scheme of the State government. The double bedroom scheme, which was the pet programme of the Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, has now become a centre point to the politics in the State.

The homeless people were already moving pillar to post hoping to get a double bedroom house sanctioned. But majority of the Chenchu tribals seem uninformed about the scheme. The much hyped publicity of the State government about the double bedroom houses did not reach the remote rural areas in the state.

Near the Chenchu colony in Chandampet mandal, about seven families were living in small huts. Having four to five members in each family, they were living in a congested place. Though they are eligible for the scheme, they are unaware of it. Speaking to The Hans India, a Chenchu, Jalla Muthaiah, who is living in a small hut with his four family members, said “What is it?” when questioned about the 2 BHK scheme.

“In the colony, we are facing acute drinking water problem. The government should provide basic facilities for us,” he requested. Udathala Muthamma said her two sons were living in pucca houses with their families. “How illiterates living in an isolated place can ever know about such a scheme?” she said.

Ramudu said that earlier they eked livelihood based on the forest products like collection of honey etc. But, now it has become hard to depend on those products for livelihood. “If the government provides double bedrooms to us at residential areas, we can shift to daily labour and other works to earn money,” he felt.
