[ZESTCaste] Respect Indian Constitution: Sriprakash Jaiswal to Hazare

Respect Indian Constitution: Sriprakash Jaiswal to Hazare
PTI | 09:08 PM,Aug 20,2011

Lucknow, Aug 20 (PTI) Framing of laws is a prerogative of Parliament
and should be done by MPs, Union Minister for Coal Sriprakash Jaiswal
today said and appealed anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare to respect the
Constitution. "Anna Hazare is a social activist and we respect him,
but he should not also forget to respect the Constitution framed by Dr
Ambedkar," Jaiswal said while addressing a SC/ST convention organised
by the party here. He said that framing law was the work of the
Parliament and it should be done by the MPs. The minister said that he
appealed Anna Hazare not to be adamant and contribute in strengthening
the Constitution by honouring the law. Jaiswal alleged that the Centre
has launched a number of schemes for upliftment of Dalits, but in UP
it was not reaching the real beneficiaries. The reality is that
Mayawati is using Dalits only as the vote bank and had nothing for
them, he alleged. UPPCC president Rita Bahuguna Joshi alleged that due
to corruption and scams development had come to standstill in the
state. Alleging that central fund was not reaching Dalits, she said
that law and order situation had hit bottom low and there was spurt in
crime against SC girls.
