Adivasis of Telangana’s Adilabad hope to benefit from Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan’s tour

ADILABAD: Adivasis are eagerly looking forward to Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan’s tour of erstwhile Adilabad district, slated for Monday. This is the first time that a Governor will be visiting Adilabad, after the formation of a separate Telangana in 2014, to take part in the celebrations organized to commemorate the birth anniversary of tribal freedom fighter Birsa Munda.
It may be recalled that the Central government had recently announced its decision to celebrate Munda’s 146th birth anniversary as ‘Janjatiya Gaurav Divas’. As part of this, Governor Soundararajan would visit the ancient Nagoba temple at Keslapur village in Indervelli Mandal and offer prayers to the sacred deity of Nagoba.
Tribals of the erstwhile district are hopeful that the Governor’s visit will benefit them in many ways. Since the Governor holds a special power over many Acts related to their lives, Adivasis are planning to bring to her notice various matters, including pattas for podu lands, GO No 3, migration of Lambadas to get ST certificates, the establishment of a tribal university, and lack of road connectivity.
