‘Adivasis have right to live in forests'

Staff Correspondent



Stand for rights:The former leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council A.K. Subbaiah addressing the tribal people at Nagarahole National Park in Kodagu on Wednesday.

Mysore: Speakers at a programme organised by the People's Movement for Human Rights (PMHR) at Gaddehadi, a tribal colony in the Nagarahole National Park in Kodagu, on Wednesday endorsed the views of the adivasis that they had every right to live in the forests and forests could not exist without them.

Inaugurating the programme, “Kadina Makkala Ulivu”, the former Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council A.K. Subbaiah said that pseudo-environmentalists perpetrated crime against tribal people living in the forests in the name of conservation of flora and fauna. Shifting the tribal people from the forests forcibly was like removing fish from water and it would not succeed, he said.

The State government should create an environment conducive for the tribal people to move out of the forests voluntarily and willingly, and not by force, Mr. Subbaiah said.

He spoke about the “conspiracy” by some vested interests to stall the implementation of the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers' (Recognition of Rights) Act which came into effect in 2006.
