Non-inclusion of Dalits/OBCs from Karnataka exposed BJP's 'concern' for communities, says Siddaramaiah

chief minister siddaramaiah On Tuesday he criticized the BJP, saying its “concern” for Dalits was evident from the non-inclusion of members of the community or even a backward class MP from Karnataka in the Union Cabinet.

Replying to opposition leader R Ashoka, the CM said that it was the Congress party that for the first time in the country implemented the SCP/TSP Act and reserved 25% of the total resources based on its population. “If you have guts, tell the Prime Minister to implement this law at the national level,” he challenged Ashoka. SCP/TSP means Special Component Plan/Tribal Subplan.

His comments came a day after Home Minister G. Parameshwara, a Dalit leader, criticized the Center for “neglecting” the backward classes and Dalit communities while electing state parliamentarians to the union council of ministers.

“It seems that they [BJP/NDA] We do not want backward classes or Dalit communities. There are several people from those communities who have been elected in the state by that party… They could have considered them, but it is at their discretion. But it is evident that these communities have been neglected,” the minister told the media.

Of the five ministers from Karnataka, two are Brahmins, two are Vokkaligas and one member is Lingayat.

SINGLE DIGIT: The CM said the BJP won so many seats because the party exploited the issue of murder of an innocent woman in Hubballi for its own political benefits. “We suffered a setback in that part (Mumbai-Karnataka). Without him, his party would have been reduced to single digits,” the CM posted on social media platform X.
