Bharat Jodo Yatra: Rahul Gandhi has targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for calling tribals forest dwellers. He said in Maharashtra that tribals are the real owners of India.
What did Rahul Gandhi say?
Rahul Gandhi alleged that the central government has weakened the Congress government’s law giving rights to tribals. He said the Modi government is diluting laws like the Panchayat (Extension to Scheduled Areas) Act, Forest Rights Act, Land Rights, Panchayat Raj Act and reservation for women in local bodies. Also claimed that we will strengthen this law when the government comes.
PM Modi made this allegation
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to take the land of tribals and give it to his business friends. Apart from this, he said, “If you do not understand the culture and history of the tribals, then you will not be able to understand the country.”
Some days ago the Prime Minister used the word Vanvasi for tribals, the meaning of these two words is completely different.
