Jammu: With reported delay in submission of tribal sub-plan to the
Planning Commision by the NC-Congress government in the state, BJP
today accused it of being callous towards the welfare of SC/ST

"Non-submission of the tribal sub-plan to the plan panel in time is a
very serious issue and the delay shows that the present NC-Congress
coalition is not committed towards the welfare and uplift of the SCs
and STs in the state," state BJP chief Shamsher Singh Manhas told
reporters here.

The most unfortunate part of the whole issue is that such things are
happening in the state at a time when the deputy Chief Minister
himself belongs to the Scheduled Caste, he said.

Not only this, the state cabinet also has ministers who represent the
ST majority constituencies, he said.
