Deepak The State Government has failed to take up the implementation of welfare schemes for tribals, representatives of different tribes said at a state-level meeting of Scheduled Tribe organisations. The Government has not taken any step to fill in backlog vacancies under ST quota, there is a need to conduct a special ST DSC for recruitment of teachers for schools in the ITDA areas, even this has not been done.
