Mangalore: Dalits Demand 24% Fund Allocation in State Budget from Government

Daijiworld Media Network- Mangalore (RX)

Mangalore, February 14: A large number of Dalits came out of their
home, demanding 24 pc fund allocation in the state budget for the
development of its community habitation, here on Monday, February 14.

Dalits protested under the Communist Party of India (M). 'Dalits have
been the victims of injustice increasingly these day', said Sunil
Kumar Bajal, Mangalore city secretary of the CPI (M) while addressing
the agitators. After the B S Yeddyurappa led BJP government came into
power, the situation has become worse, he added.

The C M has spent crores of rupees on temples and mutts who seem to
promote inequality in society but has failed to take constractive
measures to assure the development of dalits.

Setting up of Special Component Plan (SCP) in proportion to the
population of Dalits and provision of 7 per cent reservation for STs,
1 lakh rupees for inter caste and Devadasi marriages, establishment of
sufficient hostels for Dalit students at district, taluk and hobli
levels and to provide Rs 2000 as stipend for those students are some
of the other demands by the protesters.

Lingappa Nanthur, Krishnppa Salian, Vasudeva, Yamuna Pacchanady and LT
Suvarna among others were present.
