Ranchi: BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Sameer Oraon has accused the Congress party of misleading the tribals and using them for their vote banks. Addressing a Press Conference at the party headquarters here he said that people are attacking the tradition and culture of the tribals and innocent tribals are being lured for religious conversion which is condemned in strongest possible words by the ST Morcha.
Mr Oraon said that at the time of the elections the Congress party indulges in such type of act. He also accused the JMM of playing with the traditional culture of the tribals. State ST Morcha President and MLA Ramkumar Pahan accused the JMM of selling Jharkhand and said that Congress has purchased it from them. He said that tribals are only vote bank for the JMM and the Congress and accused the two parties of denying jobs to the youth of the community.
Mr Pahan said that during his tenure Hemant Soreb removed the tribal language having weightage of 400 marks from the syllabus of JPSC. He also demanded for immediate probe on such elements who are trying to destroy the religion and culture of the tribals and said that strict punishment should be provided to such elements who indulge in religious conversions.
