The speakers said the small ethnic groups of the plain land are on the verge of extinction. 
The cultural groups are also disappearing and they have become the poorest and landless community of the country, they also said. 

Considering their issues and existence, the government should take pragmatic measures to protect the language and culture of the small ethnic community without any delay, they added. 
In this perspective, they demanded to the government to form separate ministry for the welfare of the indigenous people immediately. 

Later, crests and prizes were distributed to the winners who participated in the competition on different events.
