He alleged that the BJP uses 'Vanvasi' instead of 'Adivasi' for the tribal population living in forested areas.
Congress leader also alleged that the BJP government had not fulfilled its promises and accused it of working in the interest of industrialists."
'Adivasi' is a revolutionary word. 'Adivasi' means the first owner of the country. The BJP does not use this word because they know that if they use it, they will have to return the jungle, water, and land to you," he said.
