Medaras deserve ST status sign now

Need to include Medari (Basket Makers) caste of Andhra Pradesh in Scheduled Tribes list

There are about 10 lakh traditional Basket makers(MEDARI) in Andhra Pradesh who are demanding that the Basket Makers community be included in the Sheduled Tibes list. Now, Medari caste is in Backward Castes List Group-A, Sl.No.14.

A delegation of Basket Makers of Andhra Pradesh met the hon. Prime Minister in 1999, 2002 and urged him for introducing a Bill regarding inclusion of Medari community in the ST list. But, there is hardly any progress made in this regard.

Medari caste of Karnataka state has been included in ST list through an amendment to constitution in May, 2002. Medaris of Andhra and Karnataka belongs to same tribe and they all worship 'Keteshwara'.

The Medaris of Andhra Pradesh are a poor lot who are oppressed by the vagaries of nature. They have to fight for their livelihood throughout the year. They need assistance from the Union Government.

The Andhra Pradesh Government from their side have done their best to help them by identifying them to provide tools under Adarna Schemes. But, if their demand for inclusion in ST list is fulfilled, they will be benefitted a lot for getting assistance under component plan of SCs/STs and other schemes like DRI Scheme etc.

Hence, Medaras request the Union Government to initiate early action to include Medari community of Andhra Pradesh in the Scheduled Tribes list at an early date.
