Mysuru, February 12: “Chief Minister Siddaramaiah says in his speeches that he is in favour of SC/ST and they will give tender up to Rs 1 crore to Dalits. But it has helped only a few and not many. We still want to thank the government for this. But there has been no proper effort to fill up the vacant posts. The government should at least now fill the jobs with SC/STs,” said state president of Karnataka Rajya Nayakara Yuvasene, Devaraj T Katur at a press meet at Mysuru press club on Monday.
“The government is conducting Sadhana Samavesha with the taxpayers’ money. If they had given it to SC/ST communities, they would have progressed. If they don’t make direct appointment for ST students, we will teach the government a lesson,” he added.
Choranahalli Shivanna, Naganahalli Revanna, and others were present. (MR/KMR).
