Akhil Bharatiya Adivasi Vikas Parishad to felicitate WB CM on 12 February
As a symbol of gratitude and support for the good and inclusive governance in the last two and a half years, the tribal outfit Akhil Bharatiya Adivasi Parishad had decided to felicitate WB CM Ms. Mamata Banerjee.
Birsa Tirkey, the president of Akhil Bharatiya Adivasi Vikas Parishad, had earlier said the outfit would felicitate Mamata Banerjee on 25 February.
However, the felicitation programme has been rescheduled and the Chief Minister will now be felicitated by the tribal body on 12 February.
“Mamata Banerjee and her government have taken two historic decisions which would largely help tribals. First, the government formed the Tribal Advisory Council. Second, a separate tribal welfare department was formed. We consider these two decisions of paramount significance and have decided to felicitate her on behalf of the tribal population,” Tirkey had said earlier.
