Dalit organisation praises Modi govt, calls it a better performer than UPA

The Chairman of Dalit Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DICCI) – Milind Kamble on Sunday, praised the Modi government performance and called it better than the UPA government, PTI has reported.

As per Kamble, maximum work has been done for the betterment of the Dalits under the Narendra Modi led government. This as per the chairman included, formulation of pro-Dalit schemes and their effective implementation. One of the initiatives praised was the Mudra scheme, which as claimed by Kamble benefited about 2.75 crore youths belonging to the scheduled castes and scheduled tribes.

Kamble even went on to say that the Modi government’s performance has been comparatively better than that of the erstwhile UPA government led by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The Chairman also chose to be prudent in his expectations by asserting that no government could ensure employment for each of the total 19 crore educated Dalit youths in the country. He thus claimed that DICCI was trying to empower them by encouraging their indulgence in trade and business.

Incidentally just a day after the Chairman’s remarks, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath looked to bolster his party’s pro-Dalit outreach by demanding that seats be reserved for Dalits at minority-run institutions like the Aligarh Muslim University and the Jamia Milia Islamia. He also appealed to the Dalit rights activists to demand the same.

Such an endorsement by the DICCI might also provide a boost to the Modi government’s relations with the Dalits, which a few months ago were marred by mass protests and a violent Bharat Bandh by the SC/ST communities triggered by the Supreme Court’s verdict, which called for a curb on the misuse of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
