'BJP govt did not conduct SC/ST panel meet in last 2 years'
Mangalore, Aug 16, DHNS:

The SC/ST vigilance committee meeting which was supposed to be
conducted twice a year to discuss on SC/ST schemes and atrocities
against them has not been conducted by the State government during the
tenure of B S Yeddyurappa who was also the chairman of the committee,
complained Karnataka State Congress SC/ST Cell President N Manjunath
in a DK District Congress SC/ST cell meet.

State Congress SC/ST Cell President N Manjunath addressing party
workers in Mangalore on Tuesday. DH photoAfter the State-level
meeting, a report will be framed and sent to the Central government
after which funds for the SC/ST schemes will be allotted. However, the
negligence of the State government in organising the meeting has
caused a huge loss in minorities receiving funds, he said.

During the tenure of S M Krishna, as many as many as 18,000 backlog
vacancies have been created but JD(S) and BJP could not create 2,000
vacancies, he said.

He also alleged that fake caste certificates have been issued to more
than 4,500 people and he pleaded for strict action against the issuer
as well as the receiver.

He also gave a call to all the party workers to attend the State-level
Congress SC/ST conference to be held in Bangalore in the second week
of September.

Addressing the Congress Party workers, District Minority Cell
President Padmanabha Naringana said that Congress should show more
interest in creation of minority committees and also the party workers
should attend the committee meetings.

There was dissatisfaction among party workers as the meeting started
late. Bantwal Block Congress SC/ST Cell Member Janardhan Chantimar
said that the main reason the Dalits are leaving the party as they
have not received support for the cell. As discrimination continues
against them, Congress has failed to show its support, he complained
and asked the party to show their support in future.
