Speaking on the occasion after witnessing the carnival parade, he said this is the first time that tribal groups from across the country would be in Delhi at the time of the festive occasion of Diwali. He said the tribal carnival would showcase the capabilities of the tribal communities, in the national capital.
The Prime Minister said India is a land of great diversity. He said the carnival parade presented at the function today had offered just a small glimpse of this diversity.
Modi said the life of the tribal communities was marked by intense struggle. Yet, he added, the tribal communities had imbibed the ideals of community living, and of living cheerfully despite troubles.
The Prime Minister said change could not come for the tribal communities through a top down approach. He said it was necessary to make the tribal communities real stakeholders in the development process.
Modi also said the government was committed to using modern technology such as underground mining and coal gasification, which would minimize disturbance to tribal settlements.
