Addressing a gathering on the occasion of Vijay Divas organised by the Manki-Munda Sangh, the Governor noted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is working for the greater welfare of the tribals.

“The history of Manki-Munda in the state is even before independence. I am also part of the same society. Tribal society has been self-respecting. We did not accept anyone’s slavery. The struggle with the British took place even before the first battle for independence. In the digital era, the system will relevant. On my behalf I assure you that we will work to strengthen self-rule in the State,” noted Murmu while addressing the gathering at Podahat Stadium.

She noted that the tribal society has been very dear to its culture and freedom. They are the descendants of all great ancestors, who gave their lives to the sacrifice of their lives in the freedom struggle and conveyed to the British the implicit faith and love of the Lord within them.

“Our state is also on the path of development. Various public welfare and development schemes of Central and State Government are being implemented,” she said.

Earlier, as a special guest, former Chief Minister Arjun Munda said in his address that the self-governing system of Adivasis is as old as our ancient culture. This system has been recognised on the basis of tradition.

He added that that the Munda-Manki system was identified by the Britishers as self-sufficient governing system, which is complete and competent enough to handle issues of their people. Thus, the Britishers recognised it as a self-sufficient ruling system and tried to give it a recognition in larger arena.

He noted that tribal people believe the rules to be the basis of the very philosophy and system of governance handed down by the British to the independent India as consistent with the essentials of tribal culture in Kolhan.

On the occasion State President Laxman Giluwa, MLA Manjhi, were also present.
