Castebased census will be disastrous, says Swamy

  • tags: no_tag

    • Janata party president Subramanian Swamy said the proposal under consideration of the Union Cabinet to include caste in the bio details to be enumerated in the census 2011 will, if implemented, be disastrous for the nation like the British imperialist proposal in 1932 for a separate electorate for scheduled castes.


      In a statement, Swamy said the 1932 proposal was shot down by Gandhiji's fast un to death and the sagacity of Dr B R Ambedkar.


      Swamy urged the RSS to launch a national disobedience movement if the Cabinet accepts this proposal for caste census.


      "Caste is not, according to Gita (Chapter IV), birthbased and hence time has come for Hindus to jettison this baggage of history once and for all," the Janata party leader added.
