New Delhi, Dec 8 (UNI) The National Council of Dalit Christians (NCDC) here today expressed outrage over the delaying tactics of the Congress to grant SC status to Dalit Christians in the country.

It also expressed shock over the media reports about the National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) contention that there was insufficient evidence that Christians of scheduled caste (SC) origin were facing untouchability. The Elayaperumal Commission of 1969 and the Ranganath Misra Commission had submitted its report in May, this year, that they equally faced problems of social degradation and mistreatment both by their co-religionists and the others, the NCDC asserted.

''We appeal earnestly to the NCSC to consider the plight of the Christians of SC origin and recommend to the Central government to take necessary measures for the early inclusion of the SC converted Christians in the Scheduled Castes'' the Council said in a statement.
