HP Govt against Dalits: union
Nurpur, June 20
The Himachal Pradesh Scheduled Caste and Backward Classes Employees Union has alleged that the state and Central Governments are functioning against the interest of the Dalits. Mr Subhash Musafir, the state general secretary of the union, in a statement issued here today, said the Central Government had scrapped 80 lakh government posts last year. This had deprived five crore families in the country of their livelihood. He accused both the governments of harassing the Dalits and Backward Class employees. While criticising the economic policies of the Central Government, Mr Musafir called upon the Dalits and deprived sections of the society to create a sense of self respect for themselves.
