Concern over ‘anti-tribal’ laws

The All Tribal Students' Union Manipur has expressed grave concern over a set of laws which they feel would do more harm for the tribal people. In statement sent to Assam Times, the student organization called these set of anti tribal policy. “Modern political history of the tribals in Manipur is more or less a struggle for survival around this vicious circle where everything the Tribal hold dear have been coerced away some way or other. Now even their identity is at stake,” the student organization observed.

ATSUM reiterated have asked the 20 tribal MLAs to tender their resignation by owning up the responsibility of having failed to perform their constitutional duty.
