LUCKNOW: Accusing chief minister Mayawati of buckling under the feudal
forces, the CPI has reacted sharply to the the state government move
to reserve for scheduled castes the cooks slot under the mid day meal
The move will only embolden the class which still practices
untouchability, said CPI state secretary Girish while talking to media
on Thursday. While on one hand Mayawati has been promising stringent
action against the "Manuwadis", who distinguish people on the basis of
caste and creed, by abolishing the facility she has exposed her
indifference to the dalit cause, he said.
Daits are suffering under the rule by the dalit diva, he charged.
Scholarships and facilities meant for dalit students are not reaching
them and dalit women are being targeted for exploitation, he said,
adding: the BSP government with eyes firmly on consolidating its votes
bank is turning a blind eye to the development. The leader demanded
the government to provide justice to the affected class keeping its
populist policies aside.
