Itagar, Feb 19: The Indigenous Faith and Cultural Society of Aruchal Pradesh (IFCSAP) has urged the state government to sanction fund for construction of an Indigenous Cultural and Heritage Hall (Centre). Stressing the need for construction of such halls at various places for protection, promotion and preservation of indigenous faith and culture, the IFCSAP in a memorandum to Chief Minister Pema Khandu lamented that though proposals were made to the government on several occasions, funds are not being sanctioned and the proposals are still pending at the government’s disposal.
The IFCSAP also urged the government for sanctioning fund under the centre’s ‘Fair and Festival Scheme’ sanction for yearly celebration of Indigenous Faith Day and passing the Priest Shaman Bill of the state government. In the meantime, the IFCSAP suggested the state government to launch compulsory scheme for ‘Fair and Festival’, research and documentation on community basis, sanctioning more Jajati Eklavya School for remote and backward districts and blocks and to construct more bypasses in the state capital.
