The villagers feel duped. They claim that if they had known that in a few years a railway line and a coal mine would come up in their newly allotted lands they would not have accepted it. The villagers continue to fight for justice even as they bear the thunderous blasting twice or thrice a day and the inroads of constant coal dust from the mine haul that runs adjoining the village just prior to the overburden.
