Speaking on the occasion, the Minister emphasized on greater interaction among different tribal groups in the country who live in remote and forest areas.

 He said, such interaction will strengthen the national unity and integrity and will inculcate in them a sense of brotherhood, patriotism and national pride. 

The Minister focused on various welfare schemes implemented by Government in fields like literacy, particularly women literacy.

 Schemes aiming at improving health, nutrition and sanitation, drinking water, road connectivity, skill development among tribals and proper management of procurement, storage and sale of minor forest product are also being given priority and will result in over all economic and social development of tribals, the Minister said. 

Since the Republic Day celebration in 1952, every year government holds reception for tribal guests/ community leaders from across the country after the Republic Day with a view to giving them wider exposure and assimilating them into the national social mainstream.
