Fake SC certificates issued to non-SC people in Assam: Congress

Guwahati, Nov 22 (PTI) Opposition Congress on Wednesday alleged that the BJP-led Assam government has issued fake Scheduled Castes (SC) certificates to a large number of non-SC people in the state.

Addressing a press conference here, Congress National Coordinator (SC, ST, OBC and Minorities) K Raju said the party will raise the issue in the next session of Assam Assembly.

'There are many issues affecting the SC community in Assam. One of those is difficulties in getting SC certificates,' he said.

Raju alleged that the ruling BJP government is issuing fake SC certificates to a large number of non-SC people for vote bank politics.

'The AICC has requested the Assam Congress to raise this issue in the next Assembly session in the state,' he said.

Raju also claimed that no dedicated funds for the welfare of SC people have been sanctioned in Assam, while money allotted in the budget have also not been wholly spent.

He said the Congress would carry out caste censuses in every state once it comes to power. PTI TR TR ACD
