Chhattisgarh Administration Allows Plucking of Tendu Leaves to Help Villagers Survive The Lockdown

 

Chhattisgarh was one of the most affected states due to the second wave of COVID-19 in India. The administration imposed a strict lockdown across the state to curb infections. However, that also meant a loss of livelihood to many tribals and daily wage labourers.

As it was the season of plucking of Tendu leaves, the administration allowed villagers of Raigarh district to pluck and earn wages during the lockdown. Tendu leaves are a forest produce used to tie beedi bundles together.

Our Community Correspondent Rajesh Gupta also belongs to a family that plucked tendu leaves for a living. He is happy that his community has some source of income to survive the lockdown.
