Dalits demand sanction of welfare schemes

Demanding an immediate sanction of welfare schemes, members of the Dalit community organised a rally from Nalugukalla mandapam to MCT office here on Monday.

Andhra Pradesh Dalita Maha Sabha secretary P. Prabhakar demanded the government to sanction ration cards, house sites, gas connections and Bangaru Thalli certificates to poor Dalit families. He further alleged that petitions submitted by weaker sections were not being addressed properly at Rachabanda programmes. Later, they held a demonstration at MCT office and vowed to fight for their rights.
