Nitish trying to divide Dalits: Paswan
STAFF WRITER 20:15 HRS IST
Patna, Nov 20 (PTI) Two days after the Bihar government included
Ravidas community in the list of Mahadalits, Lok Janashakti Party
president Ram Vilas Paswan today alleged that Chief Minister Nitish
Kumar was trying to create a divide among the scheduled castes.
LJP will resist the government move "from the road to Parliament" and
his party members along with RJD would raise the issue forcefully in
Lok Sabha, Paswan said.
The state government has already listed 20 of the total 22 scheduled
caste communities in the list of Mahadalits on the basis of the
recommendation of the Commission.
"Only the dussadhs, the caste which I belong to has been kept out of
the purview of the Mahadalits ... It shows Kumar's animosity towards
the community," LJP chief alleged.
