Dalits demand white paper on funds for SCs

Amritsar: The Chamar Mahan Sabha, a non-political body, on Tuesday
demanded that the 85th constitutional amendment be implemented in
total in Punjab to provide maximum benefits to the Scheduled Castes
(SCs). Paramjit Singh Kainth, president of the Sabha, said that the
state government has failed to protect the rights of the SCs and
demanded that Gulzar Singh Ranike, a dalit minister, should resign. He
also urged Chief Minister P S Badal to release a white paper on how
the state utilised Rs 6092.62 crore that it received from the Centre
for the welfare of SCs.
