  • The PM gave his statement at the Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas Mahasammelan which is being held in Bhopal
  • The Prime Minister further said that earlier tribal contribution and culture was kept in the dark
  • Maintaining Modi’s link, MP CM took a jab at Cong for not giving Rani Kamalapati a crucial space in history

On Monday, PM Modi said that the culture of the tribal society and its benefaction towards the freedom struggle was honored for the first time since independence. The PM gave his statement at a gathering in Bhopal, which he addressed after paying homage to Birsa Munda on his birth anniversary. Addressing the Jaanjatiya Gaurav Diwas Mahasammelan, the Prime minister said, “Today, India is celebrating its first ‘Janatiya Gaurav Divas’.”

At the event, PM Modi targetted the earlier governments and stated that since Independence, priority was given strictly to politics and ignored the tribal society despite the culture covers around 10 percent of the total population of India.

Speaking about people who were astonished over the point of tribal people building the nation, Modi stated, “They cannot believe that it had a big role in strengthening India’s culture. It is because the nation was either never told about it, was kept in the dark, or very limited information was given on it.” The Prime Minister will also be inaugurating the Rani Kamalapati Railway Station, which has been redeveloped recently.

Shivraj Singh Chauhan, the MP CM, took a jab at the Congress, claiming that Rani Kamalapati, who was a Gond queen, never received a significant status in history either from Congress or the British. While emphasizing the fact that the Habibganj Railway station was recently renamed as Rani Kamalapati Railway Station, he said that it was PM Modi who was responsible for the renaming.

Earlier Congress questioned the relevance of organizing the Janatiya Gaurav Divas Mahasammelan. Chauhan while speaking on the issue said, “They say it is a waste of money. Some people, who used to say the BJP government is anti-tribal, are going to court. Now, they are perturbed. They spend crores on hero-heroines, on events like IIFA.”
