Hundreds of tribals of Balangir, Sonepur and Boudh and other districts carrying their traditional weapons marched on the streets here on Friday, led by leaders Brajakishroe Singhbhoi, Nirnajan Bisi and Satyanarayn Bhoi of BalangirZilla Adivasi Kalyan Sangha They demanded action against the fake certificate holders and scraping of State level scrutiny committee, formed to look into the fake caste certificate issue.

"So far out of the 353 fake certificate complaints we have submitted to Government till today, only 11employees have been dismissed and three have resigned. While the district level scrutiny committee has cancelled 34 caste certificates, the State level scrutiny committee has cancelled only six fake caste certificates. If in a year the State committee have cancelled only six caste certificates, one can imagine it would take how many years to decide the fate of 353 fake caste certificate cases," questioned Niranjan Bisi.

"We demand immediate scrapping of the State level scrutiny committee and the certificate cancellation power be vested with the competent authority district who are issuing the caste certificate," demanded Bisi.

Even today the Kulis and Doras are enjoying the benefits of tribals even though they are not tribals .We demand the arrest of those people who have enjoyed the benefits of tribal's and recovery of the same benefits from these persons, Bisi further demanded.

Later they submitted a 32 point memorandum to the Chief Minister and Chief Secretary through District Collector SN Dey and demanded revival of district level scrutiny committee. "When RS Gopalan was Collector, we submitted our demands of taking action against the fake caste certificate holders and immediate action against more than 36 fake tribal people were taken, informed Bisi.

The Collector who received the memorandum from the tribal leaders assured them of necessary action.

"We didn't take steps to paralyse the district administration as requested by it. We are waiting for one month. Unless concrete action is taken we will take further steps in this regard," he informed.

A three-tier police arrangement was made and seven platoons of police including armed police, SOG jawans were deployed during the protest, said Superintendent of Police Ajay Sarangi.

Wow, this sounds like a major concern! Is there a tribal organization that plans these protests and marches?
