HYDERABAD: State government must set up an SC and ST commission
immediately and release special component fund for the improvement of
their living standards, or they would launch agitations across the
state, warned Karem Sivagi, president of Mala Mahanadu.

Speaking at a press conference here on Sunday, he said the state
government has failed to fill up the 6,384 backlog posts for the past
five years. "Dalits and adivasis were ignored by the government by not
sanctioning sufficient funds. Particularly members of the Mala
community were not given any important posts in the government sector
as there is stiff opposition the Madiga community," he alleged.

He announced that the Mala Mahanadu had called for 'Chalo Hyderabad'
programme and a state level meeting on August 11 at Ambedkar Bhavan,
Lower Tank Bund.

There would be two sessions in the meeting and then a rally from
Ambedkar Bahavan to Indira Park. The evening meeting will be at
Bhasheerbagh press club from 3 to 5 p.m.

Mala Mahanadu vice presidents P Rammurthy and M Chinna Rao, general
secretary T Kasanna and other members of Mala Mahanadu were present.
