Villagers complained how forest officials do not respond to their demanding for action against people who destroy forest. The villagers also alleged that they are yet to receive compensation for crop damage caused by elephants due to apathy of revenue officials. The villagers were advised to attend the Collector’s grievance meeting at the earliest to sort out the issue as all concerned officials would be present there.
