Bhuria for separate tribal state

JHABUA (MP): Senior tribal leader Dilip Singh Bhuria on Saturday demanded formation of a separate state in the tribal- dominated belt of western Madhya Pradesh and neighbouring area of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Rajasthan.

The Centre should form a reorganisation commission to accord separate statehood for tribals in these areas to ensure their speedy development, Mr. Bhuria, who is also the working president of Gondwana Ganatantra Party (GGP), told reporters here.

Govt. criticised

Making a scathing attack on the BJP Government in Madhya Pradesh, the former MP alleged that all development programmes are confined to papers and files and none is being translated into action.

Tribals are being neglected and no concrete step was taken for employment generation in the State, while corruption has become rampant, he alleged and claimed that a large number of tribal people have migrated to other States in search of work.

Problems like naxalism can be solved only if tribals are given what is due to them, Mr. Bhuria said.
