Dal­its’ Ve­loc­ity Trap

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

The race is on for a new head for the Na­tional Com­mis­sion for Sched­uled Castes ( NCSC) and Dal­its are the un­in­tended ben­e­fi­cia­ries. NCSC Chair­man P. L. Pu­nia, a Congress MP, wants a sec­ond term. Vice-chair­man Raj Ku­mar Verka, a Congress MLA from Pun­jab, wants his job. So both had a show of strength re­cently. On Oc­to­ber 8, Pu­nia in­vited party Vi­cePres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi to ad­dress an aware­ness camp at Vi­gyan Bhawan. Verka or­gan­ised a Dalit Ad­hikar Di­was func­tion at Talkatora Sta­dium on the same day. Rahul obliged both.
