LIKHABALI, June 18: Abo Tani Clan Organization (ATCO) said that if the government supports in the creation of DATCA, the major problems of the entire Tani inhabitant district will be solved. ATCO president Yamra Taya spoke to reporters while visiting Gensi at Likhabali for a general meeting of the association on Monday. He said there are 14 districts of Tani inhabitants which have their own district-based, student and community-based unions and organizations. “No doubt there are numerous problems from road, health and education in the district. I believe if DATCA is created problems related to education, health and communication will get streamlined,” he added.
Lower Siang district president ATCO Nigga Yicyor, while speaking on the occasion said: “We’re in support for the creation of DATCA as it can bring major changes in terms of social development as well as development cultural and tradition. Our future is in dark when it comes to our age-old tradition and culture. Today the youth are more attracted towards modernization and westernization. Most of the youth today don’t communicate in their local dialect, they don’t even know the genealogy of the tribe.”
ATCO vice president Biri Taniya said: “If the government provides DATCA to the community, we will be able to preserve our traditional & culture for the future generation.”
