Jamshedpur: Jharkhand Human Rights Conference has complained to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking action against the state government authorities concerned on the death of an Adivasi teenager, Kamlesh Munda, in Garhwa district.
The outfit president Manoj Mishra alleged that the prolonged neglect of state government authorities led to the teenager�s death as a result of hunger and malnutrition. He said the Central government should take necessary action against the state authorities and make sure that no more such deaths take place as a result of government�s apathy.
�It is the most unfortunate incident of recent times as an Adivasi youth died due to poverty and hunger. The Supreme Court had directed the state government to take proper care of the youth who was the last member of his family. Other members of his family died earlier in the year 2003. This shows the insensitivity of the state government towards the Adivasis and the poor people,� said Mishra.
The JHRC president said the SC had entrusted the Jharkhand government with the responsibility of taking good care of Kamlesh Munda. �Kamlesh�s death proves that the tribal and poor people of the state are at the mercy of the Almighty and that the government has nothing to do with their welfare,� he said.
