Other significant issues deserve discussion, such as the fact that over the past few years, a number of mainstream TV media outlets in India have demonstrated that it is preferable to inform the tribals of the absence of crucial news from the mainstream media because we understand them. Many people also observed that their news did not appear on the newspaper's front page. In order to distribute news consistently, they developed their own news channel using alternative print, TV, and social media outlets and made individuals in their own community and other communities aware of it while doing so. Social media is used to spread a variety of messages to the public, including disadvantages, complaints, demonstrations, and other messages.
