  • | Thursday | 6th August, 2020

The Bharatiya Tribal Party (BTP), whose two lawmakers are also camping with 100 pro-Gehlot legislators in a Jaisalmer hotel since last Friday, has been vocal about the welfare of the scattered tribal population in the desert state.

In a bid to appease different sections of the society amid power struggle with his deputy, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has announced formation of an action plan for the tribal Bhil community members.

The CM’s announcement comes close on the heels of declaring August 9 a state public holiday on the occasion of the World Tribal Day.

Gehlot has directed the authorities to expedite the setting of a State Social Security Board for Unorganised Workers to alleviate the socio-economic plight of all those associated with the informal sector.

“The state will formulate an action plan for Bhil community members, who are living in the TSP (tribal sub-plan) areas in a scattered manner in districts such as Jaisalmer, Barmer, Jalore, Sirohi, Pali, and Jodhpur, for their education and social security,” he said.
