The Chief Minister is seen dancing with a group, when suddenly he breaks free and starts dancing in the centre. People around cheer him and dance along.
“We have to change our society, and determination and passion are required for change," Das later said.
He said that over the past 70 years, people had only done politics in the name of tribals and even today they are seen as vote bank.
He said his government is taking decisions in the interest of the tribals so that they could become equal in the society, adding the governments' intention is to see engineers and police officials from the tribal community as well.
Das said Rs 10 crore has been earmarked under Fellowship Yojana so that there would not be any hindrance in education of the tribal children. The government would help in all possible way if any tribal youth finds difficulty in pursuing higher studies, an official release said quoting the chief minister.
