According to locals, they are afraid of strangers thinking that would demolish their homes again. they not only lost their homes, but also their farm lands. “I feel like crying, we don’t have money. They have demolished our home. Where are we going to eat, what we are going to drink? I don’t know, we don’t have anything,” said Geetha, a victim of the government’s move. The victims say the Hindalco mining company has demolished their properties without consent and they have not compensated for their loss.
