70,000 in State have got false caste certificates

Addressing a gathering at the inauguration of Dr Ambedkar’s birth anniversary celebrations organised by the Karnataka Dalit Backward and Minorities Samiti, the Minister said that scores of ineligible beneficiaries have been misusing the constitutional provision for reservation facilities by furnishing false certificates.

He said that this had been going on for the past 30  years.  “However, the deputy inspector general (DIG) of police of the Cell has been sleeping on this,” he said.

He also said that instead of staging protests in front of the offices of the district administration, dharnas should be staged in front of the houses of false beneficiaries. Samiti’s president and MLA Y Sampangi said that the leaders of backward communities should not just aim to be ministers, but should also focus on serving the society.
