Modi government is committed to the welfare of OBC’s
Lashing out at the Congress for the recent amendments passed in the Rajya Sabha, he said the Opposition had obstructed party’s attempts at extending social welfare to Other Backward Castes (OBC). “It saddens me that the Opposition has opposed this Bill in the Upper House, and brought hurdles in its safe passage. But the Modi-led government is committed to the welfare of OBCs. No one can stop it” he said.
He said since 1955, people belonging to OBCs had been demanding constitution recognition to the OBC Commission but due to the anti-OBC mindset of the Congress Party, the Bill could not be got passed in the Rajya Sabha.
He said that none of the previous governments at the Centre ever paid any heed towards this demand of the OBCs, but when the BJP Government took steps in this direction, the Congress Party created hurdles which gave out their negative mindset.
