SC/ST body plans rally

NEW DELHI NOV. 13. The All India Confederation of SC/ST Organisations has announced its intention to organise a rally against globalisation and privatisation at Ramlila Grounds here on November 24.

The rally, to be led by national chairman of the Confederation, Udit Raj, will also seek reservation for Dalits in the private sector.

He said that since globalisation and privatisation were marring their prospects, reservation should be ensured on lines of the practice followed in the United States of America.

``If an advanced country like the USA can go for positive discrimination or special protection for weaker sections then there is nothing wrong to have it in India'', he said.
