Mysuru, July 10:- “The reclassification of castes should be done according to the survey done by the Department of Backward Communities within a month,” said former MLC K C Puttasiddashetty at a press meet on Sunday.
“210 castes in the state are backward socially, economically and educationally. State government should reclassify the castes to provide them social justice. The caste survey held recently is scientific. It should be implemented by the state cabinet. As the state government has only 9 months to go, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah should implement the recommendations to provide justice,” he added.
“The survey has also clarified that Lingayts and Vokkaligas are also not strong enough socially. Kuruba community proved to be strong in the state. If the social justice is not served, we willl stage a protest,” he added.
Mahadevaswamy, Thimmashetty, Samath and Rizwan were present in the press meet. (MR/KMR).
