Heerapur(Adilabad): Members of Human Rights Forum (HRF) on Sunday met some Lambada community people and at Heerapur thanda in Utnoor mandal and collected their opinions on the ongoing conflict between the Adivasis and Lambadas in old Adilabad district.

Team members had an interaction with the former minister and All India Banjaraseva Sangh working president Amar Singh Tilawat, who gave his version on behalf of his Lambada community on the present conflict. Mr Tilawat said that the Lambadas were not migrants and they are locals. He told them that he spoke to Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and explained to him about the ongoing conflict. 

Mr Tilawat told the HRF committee members that KCR was of the opinion to announce special package to the Adivasis for their welfare and some relaxations in norms for special recruitment for Adivasis to resolve the ongoing issue. He expressed that the issue will subside if the state government implements the 10 per cent job reservation to Adivasis. "The problem will get magnified if the government doesn’t interfere immediately," he told HRF members.
