NEW DELHI, Aug 9 : Opening another front to attack the Narendra Modi government, Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Sunday accused it of diluting tribal land rights and reducing budgetary allocations for health care and other developmental programmes for them.
In a statement on the occasion of International Day of World's Indigenous People' in New Delhi, Ms. Gandhi said the government must adopt the recommendations of the Virginus Xaxa Committee, which was set up by the UPA government in 2013 to assess the socio- economic status of tribals in the country, without any further delay.
The committee recommended changes in law to prevent further alienation of tribals and give them greater control over resources.    ?PTI
