Ambedkar has allowed the disadvantaged communities in the Constitution. The previous and current government for the first time allocated 24.1 per cent budget for the development of disadvantaged community on the basis of the population.

He further said that the demand for Rs 1,000 crore each to Baba Saheb Ambedkar Corporation and Adi Jambava Commission is appropriate.

Everyone agreed to the proposal to build a Commission exclusively for Adi Jambwa community, because of its economic and educational backwardness. The exclusive Commission was inevitable if these funds were to be utilized for the benefit of the community.

Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, former PM HD Deve Gowda, Lok Sabha Opposition Leader Mallikarjun Kharge, Social Welfare Minister Priyanka Kharge were present on the occasion.
