Dasarath Tirkey speaks on the occasion of Adivasi Diwas in Lok Sabha
Thank you Madam for giving me the opportunity speak on the occasion of Adivasi Diwas. All the members of this House are aware that the apex court has recognised Adivasis as the oldest citizens of the country. But nowadays a lot of atrocities are being committed on Adivasis.
The media and newspapers keep reporting about atrocities committed on Adivasis across the country. However, the Hon. Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee, who is our beloved Didi, is working tirelessly for the welfare of Adivasis and their all-round development.
I wish to know from the Government what measures are they taking for the development of Adivasis. Thank you.
