Initiated by Communist Party of India (Marxist), the tribal people held the rally, in which they carried some people in 'dolies' (makeshift stretchers made from wooden poles), as a symbolic gesture.

Villagers of Sirivaram tribal hamlet in Vizianagaram district of Andhra Pradesh held a unique rally in their village to draw attention of the authorities towards the problems that they face due to lack of proper roads.

Initiated by local leaders of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), the tribal people held the rally on Monday, in which they carried some people in 'dolies' (makeshift stretchers made from wooden poles), as a symbolic gesture.

Tribal hamlets in interior areas of Vizianagaram district, particularly those on hilltops, don't have proper connectivity for transport. Patients and pregnant women need to be carried in 'dolies' for a long distance to get to the nearest hospital.

In order to bring their problems to the notice of the officials, the tribal people held the rally on Monday and raised slogans for the construction of proper roads which will bring better transport facilities.

They appealed through their slogans to Deputy Chief Minister Pushpa Srivani, who is an MLA from Kurupam (ST) constituency, to look into their problems and develop the area with the construction of proper roads.
