JAMMU: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha Tuesday said that we recognize the critical role and contribution of the tribal community in the development of Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory.
LG Sinha further said that the tribal community is the prime mover of progress. Sinha made these remarks while addressing a Janjatiya Samagam on the launch of week-long festivities on Janjatiya Gaurav Divas.
Addressing the gathering, Sinha said “We recognize the critical role and contribution of tribal community in the development of J&K UT. They are prime mover of the progress. Tribal community is our moral compass and taught us the values of co-existence, oneness, harmony and sustainable living”.
Adding that he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is working tirelessly to fulfill dreams of tribals. I urge people not to fall for those instigating people on reservation. Home Minister Amit Shah has assured Gujjars & other community’s interests will be protected & there will be no decrease in their quota even by one per cent.
The nation will forever be indebted to the bravery, courage & supreme sacrifice of Bhagwan Birsa Munda and other tribal icons, LG Sinha said.
