YS Jagan seeks Governor on Tribal rights

Dec 16, 2015

YSR Congress president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy sought for State Governor intervention in protecting the Tribal rights, as the State is yet to form the advisory council for tribes mandated in the Fifth Schedule of the Constitution.

The YSR Congress Party has urged Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan to intervene in the issue and direct AP government to constitute an advisory council for tribes with a maximum of 20 members, which is considered mandatory under the Fifth Schedule. Recalling the bauxite mining in the agency areas of Visakhapatnam, YS Jagan stated that the TDP Government is taking decisions that would affect the livelihood and community rights of Tribals living in the area.

YS Jagan, in his letter to AP Governor has also urged him to order for a judicial probe by a sitting high court judge into the call money racket scam to book the culprits behind the scam. He reiterated that Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu and TDP leaders are protecting the culprits since TDP MLAs, activists are involved in the scams like sand and liquor mafias.
