Murmu ready to iron out differences with Left parties
Jamshedpur,May 9 (UNI) Adivasi Adhikar Morcha(AAM) chief convenor Salkhan Murmu today urged the left parties not to brand AAM as an ''anti-Kurmi Mahto'' organisation and sought their cooperation in the tribals' movement in Jharkhand.
Left parties in Jharkhand joined hands with the AAM on the issue of non-implementation of PESA act and also organised several rallies and dharna jointly demanding to hold panchayat elections under the PESA act.
Mr Murmu was critised by the Mahto-Kurmi leaders and the left parties after Cardinal Telesphore P Toppo released the Tribal Manifesto in Ranchi on May 3 in which the AAM allegedly branded the Kurmi-Mahto as the main enemy of the tribals.
Talking to mediapersons here, Mr Murmu said despite the opposition of the left parties the AAM would seek the support of the left parties on issues like exploitation of tribals and their development. '' I'll try my best to pursue the left parties not to sever ties with the AAM,'' Mr Murmu said.
Mr Murmu said the AAM would launch 'Chakka Jam' from June 24 to 30 in Jharkhand to press their demand to hold panchayat elections under PESA act.
