In tribal areas of Kerala also costly crops like pepper, cardomom etc are grown. But in our state, such costly crops are very less. YS Raja Sekhara Reddy should also concentrate more on encouraging new crops. Concentrating more only on irrigation projects and loans to farmers is not enough.

Yes. Encouraging cultivation of variety crops can definitely change to financial position of tribals. Financial position of tribals is bad in our state comparing to other states.
In India rich people become more rich and poor people become more poor. Because our politicians are following pro capitalistic policies.
