Lamka, Sep 3: The Chief Minister who assumed the charge of Tribal Development portfolio a few months back today drew severe criticism from Churachandpur District Students’ Union (CDSU).
It accused the CM of having a sinister design and clandestine motive to meddle into the affairs of tribal.
The CM’s move stands contrast to the tall claims made by the Congress led SPF Government on prioritising welfare of the tribal people in the hills, alleged a CDSU statement.
It also accused Ibobi of discreetly assigning non-tribal civil service officials to hold key posts in the Department.
The Department set-up which is exclusively for the welfare of the State tribals, must be immediately handed over to the most competent tribal MLA/Minister and the key post should be assigned to tribal civil service officials, it demanded.
