Caste discrimination a reality: Punia

Kolkata, Jan 19 (IANS) People belonging to the Scheduled Castes still face discrimination in society, National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) chairman P.L. Punia said Thursday.

“After getting so many complains from all over the country, I feel that people from Scheduled Castes still face discrimination on the basis of caste and creed,” Punia said at a function here.
“Babasahab Ambedkar had once said that we are entering into an era of contradiction. On one hand, we are equal in term of political perspective but on the other hand, we are unequal in terms of social and economic perspective,” he said.
