Make SC, ST Commission functional, appeals Lok Satta

The Sarva Jana Satta, a Lok Satta affiliate, has requested the Chief
Minister to appoint Chairman and members of the State SC, ST
Commission without further delay.

The Sarva Jana Satta, representing SCs, STs, OBCs and minorities,
pointed out to Chief Minister K. Rosaiah that the posts have remained
unfilled for a year and half now at a time atrocities on SCs and STs
have been growing.

A memorandum Mr. Eda Chennaiah, Sarva Jana Satta convener, and others
presented to the Chief Minister at his Camp Office on October 7
disclosed that the commission addressed only 4360 of the 23773 cases
filed with it in the last eight years.

The leaders wanted the Chief Minister to appoint persons of integrity
and competence transcending politics as Chairman and members of the
commission, fill in all vacant posts and appoint staff in tune with
the commission's workload, and ensure that the commission submits an
annual report to the legislature through the Governor.

The Chief Minister said he had not been aware of the posts of Chairman
and members lying vacant and a large number of cases pending before
commission and added he would attend to them, Mr. Chennayya told the
media later.
