No state has implemented Schedule V fully: Tribal activist

-The Indian Express

“What Lodhi and Mughal dynasties or the Britishers did not do to us (tribals), the Indian government is doing today through force of law. Schedule V of the Constitution is in our favour, but not in a single state it has been implemented with full effect,” Jayant Munda said.

Jharkhand-based social activist Jayant Munda, who is the son of tribal leader and Constituent Assembly member Jaipal Singh Munda, Sunday said that Schedule V of the Constitution that deals with tribal areas has not been fully implemented in any state in the country.

“What Lodhi and Mughal dynasties or the Britishers did not do to us (tribals), the Indian government is doing today through force of law. Schedule V of the Constitution is in our favour, but not in a single state it has been implemented with full effect,” Jayant Munda said at a function organised by Narmada-based Adivasi Sahitya Academy here to honour his father.

“…If one retaliates to anything wrong being done to us, then we are branded as criminals and anti-nationals. Today, it is not possible to fight with a bow and arrow, but we can fight the law with the law.
