Migration of Labor from Mahaboobnagar (Palamoor) December 15, 2006

Posted by Laxmi Goutham Vulpala in Uncategorized.


Here is an heart wrenching documentary on Mahaboobnagar. I was very disturbed after watching this Video,. Though I spent first 21 years of my life there I never knew it was so bad, I guess we were pretty much insulated from all the poverty around. The Statistics mentioned in the documentary are comparable the levels of HDI indices in Sub Saharan Africa and way lower than other parts of India and Andhra.Yet none of the politicians seem to care.

 This phenomenon of migration to cities  should have been good for the district as most rural to urban migration provides more oppurtunities to people and helps raises their standard of living , Why isnt this happening in Mahaboobnagar’s case?If this kind of migration has been going on for decades why hasnt there been a Cash Infow from the migrants who earn more in cities?
