Need to fight against ‘injustice’ emphasised
D. Shivshankar, State president of the Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe Employees’ Association, has urged people belonging to backward communities to shun differences and make efforts to bring in overall development of their community by utilising the available resources.
Inaugurating the district unit of the association and the Pratibha Puraskar programme here on Sunday, Mr. Shivashankar lamented that even six decades after Independence, many people belonging to backward communities were deprived of benefits of reservation as only a very few were enjoying them.
Blaming the community leaders for the current scenario, he said: “The overall development of backward communities will be possible only when the leaders join hands together and stand united by forgetting their differences of opinion,” he said.
He alleged that injustice was being done to higher officers belonging to backward communities in promotion, increment and other facilities. “Therefore, it is time the backward communities came together to fight against this injustice,” he said.
District president of the association R. Tippeswamy presided. M Mallanavar and K. Parashuram Gorappa were present.
