Vijayawada: The AP Assembly on Wednesday passed an important resolution seeking inclusion of Dalit Christians in Scheduled Caste reservation category.

AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu asked the Centre to respond positively to the demand of SC reservations for Dalit Christians. Mr Naidu presented the resolution and the House which was adopted. The resolution will now be sent to the Centre. The resolution is non-binding on the Centre.

 

Mr Naidu said Dalit Christians had been fighting for SC reservations for decades and their demand was justifiable. He said there was a need to treat Dalit Christians on par with Dalits who had adopted Sikkhism and Buddhism. Mr Naidu asked the Union government to fulfil the demand of including Dalit Christians in the SC category.
