Deputy commissioner D Randeep instructed the officials to set up a notice board in front of all the temples belonging to the muzrai department that all are allowed to enter the temple irrespective of caste or gender before May 20.
He was speaking at a meeting organised by the district SC/ST in-Charge committee on Wednesday.
“Notice boards needs to be installed in front of temples in rural areas. The amount of punishment for any discrimination based on caste will also be displayed on the notice board. If any such incident takes place one can report it to the DC office,” he said.
“Untouchability is a biggest social curse. To abolish this, Street plays and awareness programs will be conducted in selected areas. These programs will be conducted to mark the birth anniversary of Dr B R Ambedkar. Chief Minister and district incharge minister will be invited,” he said.
“In harassment cases, earlier, the victims had to struggle to get the travel allowance. Now the rule has been simplified and the victims can directly get the travel allowance from the Taluk officer with the attendance letter given by the court,” he explained.
ZP CEO Shivashankar, district social welfare officer Prabha and others were present.
