A Tribal Youth Exchange Programme organised by Nehru Yuva Kendra was inaugurated by Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy here on Saturday.

Reddy said that while civilisation is improving tremendously, forest areas are shrinking and tribal people are losing their freedom.

“Tribal people are the original inhabitants of this land,” he said.

He said the aim of this programme is to bring tribal youths from the forests to the mainstream and involve them in development activities.

This programme will give them an opportunity to know different cultures, and create unity in this country, he said.

“We speak different languages, belong to different castes and sub-castes, but we are all living together. This is a wonder and we can’t see it in any part of the world.”

Saleem Ahmed, Director General of Nehru Yuva Kendra, said the role of youths is very important for building a strong country.

“The overall development of the country is in youths’ hand. Through this programme, every year, we send 2,500 tribal youths of five states to other states so that they understand the culture and tradition of those states,” he said.
