Prime Minister Narendra Modi has started a new project called PM Tribal Justice Maha Abhiyan PM-Janman (PM PVTG Mission) with around Rs 24,000 crore.
PM Modi highlighted that a key part of the plan for a better India is PM Janman or PM Tribe Tribal Justice Maha Abhiyan.
He mentioned that during the BJP’s Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, a separate ministry for tribal society was created with a dedicated budget.
PM Modi added that the budget for tribal welfare has been increased six times compared to before.
The Prime Minister stated that through PM Janman, the government will reach out to tribal groups and primitive tribes, many of whom still live in forests.
PM Narendra Modi mentioned that the government has found 75 tribal communities and ancient tribes, totaling thousands of people, residing in over 22 thousand villages across the country.
The Prime Minister said, “In the past, governments focused on gathering information, but I aim to improve lives, not just collect data.
That’s why we’ve started PM Janman.” The government plans to invest Rs 24,000 crore in this significant effort.
Additionally, separate initiatives will be implemented to ensure the overall well-being of these tribes, covering areas such as PMJAY, Sickle Cell Disease Eradication, TB Eradication, 100% vaccination, PM Surakshit Matritva Yojana, PM Matru Vandana Yojana, PM Nutrition, PM Jan Dhan Yojana, and more.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that tribal heroes played a crucial role in the freedom struggle all across the country.
He expressed sadness about how these remarkable individuals were often neglected.
The Prime Minister also expressed satisfaction at honoring these heroes during Amrit Mahotsav.
The Prime Minister’s Special Vulnerable Tribal Groups (PM PVTG) Development Mission is a unique initiative.
It will focus on 75 PVTGs in 18 states and union territories, residing in 22,544 villages (across 220 districts), with a total population of about 28 lakhs.
These tribes typically live in scattered, remote, and hard-to-reach areas in the forests.
So, with a plan that has around Rs 24,000 crore, we will work to give roads, phones, electricity, safe homes, and clean water to PVTG families and places where they live.
Also, we will make sure these tribes can easily get things like cleanliness, education, health, and good food.
We want to provide them with the basic things they need and help them have good opportunities for work that lasts.
