Arunachal Pradesh MP Ninong Ering has appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to revise the Constitution Scheduled Tribes Order Amendment Bill, 2018 so as to include the Yobin tribe in it.

Ninong Ering in a letter addressed to the Prime Minister on Friday said that though the Cabinet had approved the Constitution Scheduled Tribes Order Amendment Bill, 2018 to be introduced in the Parliament and had sought the inclusion of four tribes of the state namely Nocte, Tangsa, Tutsa, Wancho, the Yobin tribe had, however, been left out.

Ering further wrote that a private members’ bill on the same issue was pending since 2015 and that he have repeatedly and frequently raised the claim to include Nocte, Tangsa, Tutsa, Wancho and Yobin through this bill.

The MP also wrote a letter to Lok Sabha speaker, Sumitra Mahajan requesting her to withdraw the Bill.
