Several people are wrongfully reaping tribals' benefits
Bhartiya Sahsanyojak of All India JJSM Dr. Raj Kishore Hansda while speaking to the media that in the state there are several people who religiously converted but illegally reaping the benefits of tribals and snatching the rights of indigenous communities.
We fully oppose this trend and demand delisting of such people who forcefully capture the rights and facilities of tribals enshrined in the constitution of India, he said.
The indigenous communities protected their culture, tradition and value system for ages. Meanwhile, with the intervention of these religious converts, the whole tribal system came under attack and was facing repercussions. We will oppose this, he mentioned.
The affected will carry out massive rallies in states like Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Tamil Nadu, Bihar, Tripura, and West Bengal.
Amendment in article 342
The affected communities demanded amendment in article 342 and passed a delisting law and refusal to demands led to tribal outcry and the affected 705 tribal communities will do gherao of parliament.

Notably, in the Chhattisgarh assembly, 29 seats are reserved for ST people in alteration in voting patterns will seriously impact the future of political parties here in Chhattisgarh.
