According to news agency ANI, Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasised the significance of tribal groups on Tuesday, saying that “India’s past, present, and future is not complete without the tribal communities.” “The struggle & sacrifice of tribal communities didn’t get their rightful place in history written after independence. Today, the country is rectifying that decades-old mistake. India’s past, present and future is not complete without the tribal community,” he said.

At the ‘Mangarh Dham ki Guarav Gatha’ in Banswara, Rajasthan, Prime Minister Modi said, “Every step of our freedom struggle, pages of history are filled with tribal valour.”

Bhupendra Patel, Ashok Gehlot, and Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief ministers of Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh, were also present.

Speaking about Gehlot, PM Modi said, “Ashok ji (Gehlot) and I had worked together as CMs. He was the most senior in our lot of CMs. Ashok ji is still one of the senior-most CMs among those who are sitting on the stage right now.”

“Tradition of worshipping martyrs has been started once again by PM Modi. It is PM Modi who decided to celebrate ‘Janjati Gaurav Diwas’ on Nov 15 in the whole country,” Chouhan said during the event.

Bhupendra Patel, the chief minister of Gujarat, expressed his sorrow for the 134 fatalities in the Morbi bridge tragedy.

“I express my condolences to the bereaved families of the victims of the Morbi incident. May the affected families find the strength to go through the pain,” he said.
