Accepting traditions and lifestyle of tribal's is our constitutional obligation: Venkaiah Naidu

While delivering the foundation day lecture 'Constitution and Tribes' on the 15th foundation day of National Commission for Scheduled Tribes in the national capital, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said, ''As we look for sustainable development strategies we can learn from the environment-friendly, traditional lifestyle and techniques of the tribal community.'' ''We will have to give up this hubris that scheduled tribes are backward. We must honour and accept their traditions and lifestyle. It is not only our essential social courtesy but also our constitutional obligation and responsibility,'' he added.
