Abstract: The word ‘development’ has increasingly become an oftused, clichéd political slogan, particularly before an election in the country. But, on pondering deeper, the question that arises in mind is, ‘whose development’ are we talking about? Drawing from our basic readings in political literature, we would like to believe, it is the ‘development’ of the common people of our country, irrespective of their class, caste, gender or race, because the Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic, Republic that India has committed itself to be can make one feel that the common people are the supreme rulers in this land and that all policy decisions will be taken keeping in mind their good governance. But, has it so happened? This paper aims to particularly focus on the issue of displacement-induced development of the country in last six years, with the tribal population bearing the brunt of such flawed policies.
