New Delhi, November 21 2011:
The SHDDC delegates today met Union Tribal Affairs Minister Kishore Chandra Deo and apprised him of their grievances.
In a more than half an hour meeting, the Union Minister reportedly told the delegates that he was aware of the situation and the Sadar Hills matter and assured them to take the matter to the Prime Minister and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi.
According to the SHDDC the State Government's move for district re-organization would affect the existing boundaries of Sadar hill areas.
The committee members strongly termed the move for reorganization as a tool and means to bifurcate the Sadar hills areas and further intrude into tribal lands.
A memorandum for the same was also submitted to the Union Minister for Tribal Affairs.
