Adivasi samithi's demand

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Adivasi Kshema Samithi has asked the State Government to implement the 15-point agreement on the basis of which a siege of the Secretariat organised by it in May was withdrawn. B. Vidyadharan Kani, president of the samithi, said in a statement here on Friday that the Government had reached similar agreements with the organisation during other agitations staged by it in different parts of the State.
