Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the first tribal carnival in New Delhi. The PM said that adivasis, despite living in conditions lacking basic amenities, never complain. He said that we must learn from them how to lead life.
PM Modi called for modernising the traditional methods of medication developed and practised by the adivasis so that they can expand their businesses. Shri Modi also informed that Central Government is planning out a policy, wherein a growth centre will be established in several villages. The adivasis will be provided with modern equipments at the centres.
Shri Modi said that adivasis have respected and saved our forests for years. Adding further he said that after independence there was no separate ministry for the tribal people but it was under the Vajpayee Government that a separate ministry was formed for their welfare.
