Agartala, August 18: Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha on Friday said that the development of the state is not possible without developing the Janajati community.
“In the absence of development among the Janajati people, the progress of the state remains elusive. Janajatis are integral to the advancement of the state. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is genuinely committed to the development of the Janajati populace. He is diligently working towards this objective, and under the direction of PM, the current state government is working with utmost importance for the overall development and welfare of the people in the TTAADC area,” said Chief Minister.
Dr. Saha said this today while addressing a workshop on ‘Consultation Workshop with Pradhan Samajpatis of directed Tribal Communities of Tripura’ held at Prajna Bhavan in Agartala on Friday.
The Chief Minister emphasized that in the past, Janajati communities were often exploited for vote bank politics. However, since Narendra Modi assumed office as Prime Minister in 2014, he has prioritized the welfare of the Janajatis.
“Janajatis are essential for the advancement of society, state, and country. PM Modi is spearheading this effort nationwide. Janajati individuals are also part of the Tripura State Cabinet, and the Prime Minister has ensured their representation in the Union Cabinet as well,” Dr. Saha explained.
“For many years, the royal family of Tripura was not duly acknowledged. However, our government has taken numerous measures to honor the royal family of the state. The government is committed to serving the people of the state in line with the Prime Minister’s vision. In this endeavor, Janajati Samajpatis have a pivotal role to play. They must shoulder the responsibility of disseminating the government’s welfare-oriented policies down to the grassroots level of society,” Dr. Saha said.
