Govt ready to implement Sadashiva Commission report: Karnataka Dy CM
Bengaluru, Jan 18: Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Dr. G Parameshwara said the government has no objection to the implementation of the Sadashiva Commission report, but there should be a comprehensive debate on this report.
He was speaking on the occasion of the inauguration of Karnataka Adi Jambava Development Corporation organized by the Department of Social Welfare.
Parameshwara said, "The Sadashiva Commission was constituted to study the educational, economic and social backwardness of Dalits. This report needs to be discussed at the government level. We have no opposition to the implementation of this report. We all want this report to be implemented."
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.
