GUWAHATI, June 28 - Tribal people cannot think of their survival if they are alienated from their land. Alienation of the tribals leads to conflict in personal, regional, national and even in the global level. This was the observation made by All Bodo Students� Union (ABSU) president Pramod Boro who is also a joint secretary of the National Federation for New States (NFNS).

Boro was delivering the keynote address at the national seminar on land alienation of the indigenous tribal people of India at the District Library auditorium here today.

He called for a government policy for land protection and land use in a proper way, adding that the civil society should unite to raise its voice in unison to protect the land of those who are dependent on it.

Addressing the function presided over by NFS president Shrihari Aney, who is also a former Advocate General of Maharashtra, Dhananjoy Debbarma of the Tripura Civil Society spoke on the land rights-related scenario of Tripura vis-�-vis the land laws in that State.

Debbarma advocated amendment to the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution with a provision for direct funding to the Sixth Schedule areas. Besides, he pleaded for steps to entrust the Tripura District Council with the legislative power to tackle land rights-related issues.

Further, the Tripura Land Revenue Regulations should also undergo a holistic amendment to ensure land rights to the Tripura tribals, he said.

Speaking on the occasion, All Assam Tribal Sangha general secretary Aditya Khakhlary requested the NFNS to prepare a special road map for solving the land-related problems of the tribals in the country.
