SC, ST feeling insecure under present regime: Pramod Kumar
Pritam says that the biggest challenge today is to protect the constitution framed by BR Ambedkar
The in-charge of Scheduled Caste (SC) of Uttarakhand Congress, Pramod Kumar has said that the new committee of SC cell of state would be a mixture of experience and young workers. Addressing the media persons at state headquarters of Uttarakhand Congress, Pramod Kumar said that the people belonging to the lower strata of the society are feeling insecure in the present regime as the laws protecting SC and STs are being tempered with. He warned that the Congress party would not tolerate the fiddling with the laws protecting these sections of the society. Later addressing the party workers, the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Pritam Singh said that the biggest challenge today is to protect the constitution framed by BR Ambedkar. Launching into a scathing attack on the BJP governments of centre and state, the PCC President said both these governments have failed miserably in controlling the contagion of the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19). “ Now when the situation has gone out of control the centre and state governments are running away from their responsibilities and have surrendered before the pandemic,” he said. The PCC president claimed that the Congress party workers worked hard and provided every possible help to the people during the pandemic. He said that the Congress is a democratic party which respects the persons of all religions, castes and creeds.
The president of SC cell of Uttarakhand Rajkumar said that the Congress party under the leadership of its great leaders not only fought the war of independence but also brought a large section of society considered untouchables into the national mainstream by empowering them.
The vice president of Uttarakhand Congress Surya Kant Dhasmana, state general secretary Vijay Saraswat, Mahanagar president Lal Chand Sharma and other Congress leaders were present on the occasion.
