Tribal welfare push
While keeping the promise to empower the tribal community in Jammu and Kashmir LG Manoj Sinha recently has decided to give them the rights under the forest protection act and has also decided to release the initial money so that the infrastructure is built in the tribal areas of Kashmir.
Apart from this allocated Rs 73 crore for Cluster Tribal Model Village so that the tribal community feels the change on the ground and will see themselves how the administration has decided to uplift them.
In a historic step that has the potential to transform the lives of members of the deprived Tribal Communities in the UT of J&K, he handed over individual and community rights certificates to the beneficiaries of Gujjar-Bakerwal, Gaddi-Sippi communities under the Forest Rights Act, 2006.
He termed it as a historic day for J&K and said that it was after a wait of more than 14 years, due rights have been conferred upon the Tribal community by implementing the Forest Rights Act of 2006, keeping in mind the basic spirit of social equality and harmony as guided by the Constitution of our country and the Parliament.
He said that under the guidance of the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the J&K administration has been vigorously pursuing the ideals of establishing an equitable and just social order and has been working sincerely to empower the Tribal community, which remained neglected and discriminated against for decades together.
