Round-table meet for minorities' cause

He was speaking at a function which was organised by the All India Minority Backward and Dalit Parishat to commemorate the birth anniversary of former CM Devaraj Urs at Town Hall on Sunday.

Ananth Kumar said the backward and Dalit communities are the backbone of the society but their development post-independence is not satisfactory. In this regard the government would hold a round-table conference at Vidhana Soudha.

He said the Karnataka government under B S Yeddyurappa is carrying out programmes to help the weaker section. He added that in the last one-and-half years the money spent in Karnataka on downtrodden communities, is much higher than the expenditure in the last sixty years of independence. Yet their under-development  remains a cause of concern.

He added that their demands and plights would be raised in the Assemblies prominently. He said the architect of Indian Constitution Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar had emphasised upon unity among the weaker section of society and that should be obeyed for prosperity, said Ananth Kumar.
