KOCHI: The forum for protection of Scheduled Castes in the State will start an agitation against the government decision to include the Ezhava Thandan community in the Scheduled Caste category.

K.V. Kumaran, chairman of the forum, said here on Thursday that the government counsel in the Supreme Court had “concealed the fact” that the Ezhava Thandans were not eligible for inclusion in the Scheduled Caste category. — Staff Reporter
