The Kerala State Women’s Commission chairperson K. C. Rosakutty has said that Commission would hold special adalats in the tribal colonies of the district to solve women’s issues.

Speaking to the media here on Friday after a mega adalat of the Commission, Ms. Rosakutty said the participation of women from the tribal sector was very low owing to their ignorance about their rights.

To increase awareness, the commission would convene a joint meeting of tribal volunteers, Asha workers and the police soon, Ms. Rosakutty added.

As many as 68 cases came before the panel during the adalat, out of which 38 were settled.
