Kolkata: People belonging to the Scheduled Castes still face
discrimination in society, National Commission for Scheduled Castes
(NCSC) chairman P.L. Punia said Thursday.
"After getting so many complains from all over the country, I feel
that people from Scheduled Castes still face discrimination on the
basis of caste and creed," Punia said at a function here.
"Babasahab Ambedkar had once said that we are entering into an era of
contradiction. On one hand, we are equal in term of political
perspective but on the other hand, we are unequal in terms of social
and economic perspective," he said.
