The hapless residents of the interior but hilly Mangi region lost the public transport system due to heavy rains that hit the rocky stretch and barred the Maoists, who made the region their stronghold, in 1995. As a result, , they have been forced to travel around 25 kilometers or rely on private carriers to find bus service from Tiryani Mandal’s headquarters for more than two decades. They had invariably struggled to reach the outside world for various needs during the period.
Cut off from the present, gullible ethnic tribes can now easily reach Mandal’s headquarters not only to shop for groceries, but also to take their family members to a primary health facility in the event of a medical emergency. The credit goes to the intervention and the particular interest of the sub-inspector Tiryani Pushpala Rama Rao who is dedicated to meeting the challenges of the tribals of this inner mandal of the district.
