Capital BJP welcome govt resolution

ITANAGAR, Aug 28: The BJP’s capital district unit has welcomed the state government’s decision to persuade the Centre to bring Arunachal under the ambit of the 6th schedule of the constitution.

“The 6th schedule provides protection to tribal people’s rights in the Northeast. Unfortunately, Arunachal is the only state which was left out without any protective provisions for its tribal communities under the Indian constitution,” the party said.
