The Odisha government has recommended the inclusion of over 160 communities in the state’s Scheduled Tribe (ST) list since 1978 with the approval of the Tribes Advisory Council. Patnaik, in a letter to Union Tribal Affairs Minister Arjun Munda on Friday, said over 160 communities in the state were facing “historic injustice” due to the delay in inclusion in the ST list.

Patnaik said in the letter that some of these (160 communities) are new, while others are sub-tribes, sub-groups. Patnaik has said that these communities are being deprived of the benefits enjoyed by the STs, though they have the same characteristics as the notified STs concerned.

Patnaik mentioned in the letter, “It is informed to me that a task force under the Ministry of Tribal Affairs had recommended nine proposals from Odisha in 2014 as matters of priority for inclusion in the ST list of the State, but It has not yet been notified in the Presidential Order.

“Therefore, I request you to kindly look into this pending matter and expedite the steps to provide social justice to these communities as per the provisions of the Constitution of India,” the Chief Minister said.

Addressing the pending matter, he urged Munda to take immediate action and do justice to the communities who have been waiting for decades for their proper redressal of grievances.
