Mangalore, February 14: A large number of Dalits came out of their home, demanding 24 pc fund allocation in the state budget for the development of its community habitation, here on Monday, February 14.

Dalits protested under the Communist Party of India (M). ‘Dalits have been the victims of injustice increasingly these day’, said Sunil Kumar Bajal, Mangalore city secretary of the CPI (M) while addressing the agitators. After the B S Yeddyurappa led BJP government came into power, the situation has become worse, he added. 

The C M has spent crores of rupees on temples and mutts who seem to promote inequality in society but has failed to take constractive measures to assure the development of dalits.

Setting up of Special Component Plan (SCP) in proportion to the population of Dalits and provision of 7 per cent reservation for STs, 1 lakh rupees for inter caste and Devadasi marriages, establishment of sufficient hostels for Dalit students at district, taluk and hobli levels and to provide Rs 2000 as stipend for those students are some of the other demands by the protesters.

Lingappa Nanthur, Krishnppa Salian, Vasudeva, Yamuna Pacchanady and LT Suvarna among others were present.
