Remembering the great tribal freedom warriors, like – Rani Gaidinliu, Birsa Munda, etc., Ganesan mentioned that “the history of tribal heroes has been all-encompassing and all-embracing. Therefore, the youth should be made aware of the life and values of these heroes.”
The efforts made by the National Commission of Scheduled Tribes (NCST), New Delhi to organize such an important event, in line with the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ is indeed commendable and praiseworthy, he added.
