DIPHU, March 23 � The Tribal Welfare Development Organisation Council, Autonomous Council (TWDOCAC) has demanded cash credit fund for the tribal people. Krishna Rongpi, Chief Chairman of the TWDOCAC said, �We have been demanding cash credit fund to strengthen the financially weaker tribal people. But the government is maintaining an indifferent attitude over our demand.�
�The Tribal Development Organisation Council, Autonomous Council is a secular, non-political, non-governmental, non-profitable registered charitable trust formed by a group of professionally qualified social workers from different reputed institutions, educated locals, having real interest and the commitment to serve the people of different religious, languages, and especially the locals who are in need. We have been fighting to empower the weaker sections of the people. But we have only received indifference from the government instead of fulfilling our demands,� the chief chairman said.
Income tax rebate and tribal belts and blocks have been provided to those with marginal incomes and to safeguard the tribal people. Cash credit fund is also important to empower the tribal people to strengthen the financially backward tribal people, Rongpi added. But the government is not ready to hear the demands of TWDOCAC, Rongpi said.
Meanwhile, altogether 500 sewing machines were distributed by the organisation to vocationally trained persons.
