Aiming to woo the crucial tribal vote represented by 28 seats reserved for the Scheduled Tribes in poll-bound Gujarat, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday promised implementation of the Constitution’s Fifth Schedule and the Panchayat (Extension to Scheduled Areas) Act, a bone of contention of the Opposition parties.

Promising to involve the Adivasis more proactively in decisions related to them, Kejriwal stated that Gujarat’s tribal advisory committee would be headed by a person from the community instead of the chief minister as of now.
