As per the programme by Tribal Congress, the month-long movement would mark the meetings at the village level to block level where the tribal communities would be briefed on their constitutional rights, PESA Act, Forest Rights, Forest Land title rights among other core issues related to the tribal communities.

During this drive, those left out of the forest land title, their forms would be filled.  The Congress would assure them that if they form the government, they would be provided the forest land rights through title.
