Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati on Saturday mentioned that unprecedented consciousness among the many folks and completely different sections of society over the difficulty of caste-based census is giving the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) sleepless nights. She added that the BSP raised its demand in favour of the caste census throughout an all-party assembly convened by the federal government, two days forward of Winter session of Parliament.
“In the all-party meeting held on Saturday before the Winter Session of Parliament, beginning December 4, the BSP reiterated the demand to conduct a caste census in the entire country. As the demand is rising from every part of the country, it is necessary for the Union government to take positive steps in this direction,” mentioned Ms. Mayawati on X (previously Twitter).
She added, “The unmatched awareness towards the caste census among the people suffering from poverty, inflation, unemployment, water, electricity, education and law and order and those facing atrocities and casteist exploitation, is giving sleepless nights to the BJP. While the Congress is busy covering up its crimes.”
Hinting on the Census train in Bihar, Ms. Mayawati added that some State governments are attempting to half-heartedly fulfill the general public sentiments, however an actual addressing of the difficulty is barely potential by way of a caste census on the nationwide stage.
