Hyderabad, Jan 16 (Hydnow):  Former Minister and senior BJP leader D. Ravindra Naik demanded the State government to constitute a separate Scheduled Tribes Commission for the tribals. 

addressing a press conference, here today, Ravindra naik said the government should set up a separate ST Commission from the present SC & ST Commission, so that matters related to the tribe could be addressed by its own commission.  

“It’s high time that the State government constitutes a separate Commission for STs, ” he said.  Stating that the provisions of the Fifth Schedule of the Constitution of India provide for prevention of misuse of funds by the Tribal Advisory Council, a statutory body constituted by the Governor of a State, he demanded the State government to probe the alleged irregularities in the Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDA) during the previous government.
