Thane: Bombay High Court Justice V M Kanade has called for implementing various programmes for tribals in the country not just as work, but as a commitment to fulfil the rights given to them under the Constitution. While launching the NALSA (Protection and Enforcement of Tribal Rights) Scheme-2015 here yesterday, Justice Kanade said there was shortage of NGOs, advocates and para-legal volunteers for implementing various programmes for tribals.
He asked the concerned officials to implement programmes for the sake of tribals not just as a work, but as their commitment to fulfil the rights given to the community under the Constitution. The judge said it was sad that though Thane district is near Mumbai, there are still cases of malnutrition, child deaths, educational problems, legal rights, land issues, etc which need to be addressed.
