Port Blair, Aug 09: The President Nicobar Youth Association Mr. Rayhaan Pasha has written a letter to the Chief Secretary, A & N Administration on the occasion of World Tribal Day requesting for Opening of Grievances Cell for the Tribal’s of Nicobar District at Port Blair, so that the Tribal people living at the far of Nicobar group of Islands often come to Port Blair can go for redressal of their Grievances and general problems.
However, when they approach the concerned authority they are directed to approach the Deputy Commissioner Nicobar at Car Nicobar.
“You may appreciate that it is very difficult for the people to again go back to Car Nicobar and present their problem/ Grievances before the Deputy Commissioner, Car Nicobar. It is not only time consuming but also presents serious travel problems for the Tribal particularly those coming from small islands like, Kamorta, Teresa, Chowra, Katchal, etc. The opening of Tribal Grievances cell exclusively for the Tribal of the Nicobar District at Port Blair for the convenience of the General tribal population of Nicobar District will solve this problem,” the President of NYA said here.
