They plan to use their votes to respond to government policies that hurt them, said Catholic leader Prabhakar Tirkey. Tribal people, who follow both Christianity and the indigenous Sarna faith, can influence the outcome of all 14 parliamentary constituencies in the eastern state, according to Tirkey.
