Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Sunday made a strong pitch for reservation in private sector and judiciary and decided to launch social justice camps in various parts of the country under the banner of Dalit Sena.
Chairing a meeting of the Sena headed by his younger brother Ramchandra Paswan, the Union Minister decided to hold a three-day social justice camp at Sarnath from April 2 and a two-day camp at Nagpur in Maharashtra on April 11 and 12.
"These camps will take up a number of pending issues related to the empowerment and welfare of Dalits. Another meeting of Dalit Sena will be held on March 14 to finalise the plans," Paswan said after the meeting.
Paswan said time has come that the SCs/STs are given reservation in jobs in private sector as well as in judiciary.
"We demand strict implementation of Special Component Plan for SCs and Tribal Sub Plan so that these classes get their due. Dalit Sena also demands that the government pass an Act to give a proper Constitutional and legal framework to reservation and fulfil the long pending demand for quota in promotion," the Union Minister said.
