Govt committed to the welfare of weaker sections of society: Gehlot

NSD Logo Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Thawar Chand Gehlot today said in Rajya Sabha the government is committed to the welfare of SCs and STs and other weaker sections of society.

He was replying to  a private member’s resolution seeking to implement a uniform reservation system in the country. 

Mr Gehlot said the government follows laid down procedures and rules while adding or deleting  sub- castes in the SCs or STs list. He informed the House that in the last four years, 24 castes have been included in the list and six excluded after receiving proposals from 11 States.
