Task force to streamline schemes for SC/ST: Mukul Vasnik
Gulbarga, Karnataka Mar 10 : The UPA Government will streamline
schemes for upliftment of women belonging to scheduled castes and
scheduled tribes which will be reflected in the coming Union Budget,
Union Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Mukul Wasnik said today.
Speaking to media persons after inaugurating a girls hostel here, he
said the Centre aimed to set aside 20 per cent of the government
resources for the two communities.
The Minister regretted that the families in the downtrodden sections
have not been able to fully utilise the special schemes meant for the
girl child. 'We have so many schemes and it is time the parents from
these sections of the society fully support their daughters to get
empowered by getting educated and enter the mainstream,' he said.
He regretted that excepting for one or two sectors, women lagged
behind men in taking up better employment though they were fully
equipped to do so. (UNI)
