Relook at dismissed tribal pleas: MP CM

Bhopal, June 18 (UNI) Reiterating the Madhya Pradesh dispensation’s commitment to protecting tribal interests, Chief Minister Kamal Nath averred on Tuesday that over 3.5 lakh applications for land titles – rejected by the predecessor government – shall be reconsidered, it was officially learnt.
The assurance was given during a discussion with a delegation – of adivasi families from Budhni Assembly constituency – that met him at Mantralaya and was led by erstwhile chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
“The state regime always pursued a policy of safeguarding tribal rights while ensuring overall development. The Forest Rights Act, 2006 was implemented by the then United Progressive Alliance dispensation. Under it, 6.25 lakh entreaties were submitted seeking recognition of dwelling privilege. The present government commenced the process of revisiting these requests. Tendu leaf collection rate was enhanced from Rs 2,000 per standard bag to Rs 2,500 and will be paid in cash instead of through banks as was done earlier. Injustice to adivasi families is intolerable,” Mr Nath said.
