The Ministry of Tribal Affairs hosted a formal reception function in honour of Tribal Guests and Republic Day Tribal Tableau Artists from across the country, in New Delhi last evening. Shri Arjun Munda, Union Minister of Tribal Affairs;  and Smt. Renuka Singh Saruta, Minister of State for Tribal Affairs  were present on the occasion. Dr Bharati Prawin, MoS Health and Family Wekfare; Shri John Barla,  Minister of State for Minority Affairs  and  Shri Faggan Singh Kulaste Minister of State for Rural Development and Steel of India along with other dignitaries and officers of Tribal Affairs Ministry also graced the special occasion.

On the occasion Shri Arjun Munda said, "Under the leadership of PM Shri Narendra Modi, Tribal Affairs Ministry is reaching the areas, which we couldn't reach even after these many years of Independence.”

He also said that Ministry of Tribal Affairs  got the first position for the tableau and I congratulate all of them who have worked  hard in making this successful.

Shri Arjun Munda  added that through this tableau, the thought process of our tribal young generation has been showcased and it also shows how we can open the doors of knowledge and secure their future.

On the occasion Smt Renuka Singh said today tribal society is proud to see Smt. Droupadi Murmu on the highest position of the country.

She also added that tribal Ministry has announced many schemes for the tribals and Tribal Affairs Ministry is working hard to provide quality education to each and every tribal citizen of the country.


On the occasion Secretary, Ministry of Tribal Affairs Shri Anil kumar Jha said that we invite  guests from the Tribal Community every year from the states to present different Tribal cultures and they have been participating in different programmes for the last one week and today also they are heartily welcomed.

Every year, the Ministry of Tribal Affairs invites two tribal guests from each State/Union Territory with a Liaison Officer, for its Republic Day Celebrations from 22nd January to 1St February. These include a visit to Parliament, sight seeing in Delhi and a metro ride, visit to Agra and Mathura,  besides these tribal guests being officially a part of the guest list for the RD Parade, Beating the Retreat, PM's NCC Parade, PM at home, President at home and so on. The Reception hosted by the Minister of Tribal Affairs is a culmination of the RDC of the Ministry before they go to Agra and Mathura.

The occasion became more joyous with announcement that the Ministry had won the first position in the panel of Judges Section for its Republic Day Tableau on the theme of EMRS. On this occasion, the Commissioner, NESTS handed over the trophy to  Minister for Tribal Affairs, Shri Arjun Munda.



The Ministry of Tribal Affairs established Eklavya Model Residential Schools as part of the EMRS programme to ensure that quality education reaches the tribal communities living in the most remote areas of the nation, albeit with all modern conveniences. This concept is similar to how education was delivered in the midst of nature during the time of Gurukuls in ancient India. The Ministry's focus on "Nari Shakti," a symbol of girl education that ensures equal enrolment of tribal boys and girls at EMRSs, was highlighted in the tableau's front section. It also highlighted the indigenous pupils' aspiration to lead the world through education. Eklavya's bow and arrow-shaped archetypal pen, representing learning, depicts the one-eyed mission with which tribal students of EMRSs construct their future and achieve their ambitions. The rear projection of the knowledge tree symbolised the transmission of information and wisdom from EMRS teachers to students as well as one of the goals of EMRSs, the preservation of tribal culture in its natural environment.



This was the first time when a tableau of the Ministry had been presented at the RD Parade.



Tribal guests and artists were also felicitated and prizes were distributed by the  Minister,  MoS Tribal Affairs, dignitaries and senior officials of the Ministry of Tribal Affairs.

Various vibrant tribal dances were also showcased at the venue, some of these were; Paika dance from Jharkhand, Dogri and Kashmiri Folk Dance from Jammu and Kashmir, Balti Dance from Ladakh, Deepak Dance from Haryana, Tamil Nadu Kala from Tamil Nadu, KakBarak Dance from Tripura, Dhangar Dance from Maharashtra, Choliya Dance from Uttarakhand and Durga Puja Dance from West Bengal.
