Amidst the development board controversy the Khambu rights movement  today took out a huge rally in demand for a ‘ Tribal Status’ for   Khambu  Rai community .

The rally started from Trikone park encircling the town and ended in a meeting conducted at Town Hall premises.

Addressing the meet the President of the Khambu rights movement A K Rai today told that the movement leader have met West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee  and submitted a memorandum. “We have once more sent her a memorandum appealing  the state to  seriously forward the demand to the centre,” Rai said. 

Kirati Khambu Rai are one of the aboriginal tribes of the Indian union. We were in the Indian Sub Continent before Indus Valley Civilization started which has been established by the extensive research of eminent historians. However, due to various forces and situations,we were suppressed politically, socially and culturally.

So far nothing has been done for the conservation and welfare of our tribe by any other governmental and non governmental agencies, he added.

He also thanked the West Bengal Government stating, that under CM Banerjee’s initiative the state government has been kind enough to form West Bengal Khambu Rai Development Board for the development of its culture and people. He requested the CM to expedite their demand for the inclusion in the scheduled tribe list by sending a strong recommendation with requisite reasons and evidences,which is awaited by the R.G.I.

Meanwhile Sandip Kulung Spokesperson of KRM said that none of the MLA and MP have raised the Rai demand of  ST. If anyone is ready to raise the demand in the State we will vote him/her,  but in case we don’t find anybody inclined to do the requisite, we will raise our own candidate, he added.
He said that the community has a population that can play a considerable factor in the state politico
