New Delhi: Centre should have
"over-arching supervisory control and authority" to prevent
and control sectarian violence and other social conflicts
which may lead to prolonged and escalated violence, National
Commission for Scheduled Tribes (NCST) has suggested.

The Commission, however, added that the primary role
of the Centre should be that of coordinating the efforts of
the concerned states.

The NCST has given its suggestions to a high-level
panel, which was constituted by the Centre in 2007 to look
into the issues of Centre-state relations.

On the question on containing social conflicts which
occur due to migration, the Commission suggested that an
"action plan" should be initiated by involving public-private
partnership for the growth of "under-developed regions as a
whole, and not in terms of mini. Micro or macro level
administrative unit within a state."

NCST noted that migration from the under-developed to
developed regions take place due to lack of opportunities and
adequate resources.
