P. Viswanadha Gupta


In spite of the rapid and well-sustained political socialisation and in spite of the high level of political attitudes among these youth, the level of tribal yout political recruitment is dismally low.  An attempt has been made to investigate the reasons for this lapse.  Though it needs further investigation into the matter to arrive at more concrete factors which retard tribal youth participation in politics.The present investigation is aimed at understanding the levels of political attitudes and political participation of the tribal youth of the Maharashtra pursuing higher education. An earnest attempt has thoroughly been made to arrive at conclusions from the data, systematically collected and scientifically analyzed.  In order to be precise in making observations and to have clarity in making conclusions, the study is categorized into two broad domains.  The first one deals with the political attitudes in terms of social, educational and economic aspects of the tribal youth and the second part deals with the level of political participation and the political apathy in respect of these youth.
