President of AASAA, Pradeep Nag said, "The Adivasi, despite being one of the indigenous communities of India, are still fighting for their identity in Assam as Adivasis of Assam are yet to notified as Scheduled Tribe (ST)."
He further reiterated that ST status was the primary demand of the Adivasis of Assam and it was the community's constitutional safeguard and the Adivasis would continue their fight for it.
