Shimla, August 3
Mr Dev Raj, president of the Dalit Varg, talking to mediapersons here yesterday said the Chief Minister, Mr P.K. Dhumal, and his two ministers, Mr Narendera Bragta and Mr R.D. Kashyap, were trying to mislead the Dalits on the issue of regularisation of encroachments with an eye on elections.
"Had they been sympathisers of Dalits, the first thing they would have done after coming to power in 1998 would have been to regularise the encroachments," he said. He demanded that the safai karamcharis working on contract should be paid a minimum of Rs 55 per day
