kk

NILAMBUR: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that the government will not back down from development and welfare schemes no matter what crisis comes its way. He was inaugurating the distribution of land to the landless Scheduled Tribes through an online program.

"Kerala is a state that protects the indigenous people and tribals of the state and fulfils all the needs for their social progress. In seven and a half years, more than three and a half lakh families were provided with title deeds. Around 400,000 families were given houses through LIFE Mission. After coming to power, this government handed over 3,248 acres of land to 2,697 landless families," the CM said.

"Steps are being taken to ensure the skill development of Scheduled Tribes. Along with this, schemes are being implemented to turn them into entrepreneurs and employers at the same time. After this government came to power, 500 people from Scheduled Tribes were appointed as Beat Forest Officers through special recruitment. Steps are in progress to appoint 100 people as Excise Guards in the same model," he said.

PV Anvar MLA presided over the function held at Nilambur OCK Auditorium. Minister K Radhakrishnan distributed the title deeds. PV Abdul Wahab MP, Scheduled Tribes Development Department director DR Meghasree and others participated.
