Maoists to promote tribal culture

By Our Special Correspondent

VISAKHAPATNAM, JAN. 7. The cultural wing of the CPI (Maoist)'s Andhra-Orissa Border Special Zonal Committee (AOBSZC) has taken up a programme to protect the culture and traditions of girijans.

``The culture, traditions and art forms of girijans are being destroyed by the ill-effects of foreign culture which is being propagated through the works and schemes taken up to promote tourism and by television,'' according to the Maoist party. The cultural wing of the ABOSZC formed cultural troupes to promote the girijan culture and traditions as well as to fight the bourgeois and revisionist policies of the Government, said its secretary, Kiran, near K.D. Peta, according to information available here.

Cultural troupes formed with tribals were working at the village level. The troupes were creating awareness among tribals how the television advertisement spots, programmes and tourism schemes were destroying their culture and traditions.
