Writer and former Vice-Chancellor of Hampi Kannada University Chandrashekhar Kambar said on Saturday that the Government should take help from sympathetic scholars belonging to tribal communities in understanding the needs and problems of tribal people.
He was presiding over the inauguration of the two-day second tribal sammelan, organised by the Hampi Kannada University, District Administration and Federation of Koraga Development Associations at the Sri Bhuvanendra College here.
Dr. Kambar, who is also the sammelan president, said that officers should be given proper orientation in dealing with the tribal people. Officials should stop harassing tribal people. They should step in to helping the tribal people only after consulting tribal scholars. It was essential to take the tribal people into confidence in this regard, he said.
