In the joint press conference of Congress leaders held at the KPCC office on Wednesday, former DCM Dr. G. Parameshwar spoke and gave information about the purpose of the convention.
Exploited communities have been supporting the Congress even before and after independence. Congress has also taken many measures for the welfare of this community. Work has been done for the development of Dalit communities in the state in many ways. But now different parties are trying to convince them, he said.
Those who don’t even put Ambedkar’s photo in their office, now go to a Dalit’s house for dinner. But he lashed out at the BJP saying that he is having hotel meals in the house of Dalits. He said that the SCST convention was organized with the aim of sending a message that we are with you in this regard.
There are 101 sub-castes in SC, 51 sects in ST. The convention has been organized with the intention of bringing them on a platform. 24.1% alleged that there is an attempt to divide and rule our population
