Caste Census Will Bring Everyone Together: Akhilesh
Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said that Caste-based census will bring everyone together and it will integrate our society.
Akhilesh Yadav said, “Caste-based census will bring everyone together. the castes that were left behind, those who are not given respect and rights yet, and those who think that their population is more but they are not getting anything according to it, I think caste-based census will integrate our society… All castes will get rights and respect,”
Earlier, following the release of the caste survey report by the Bihar government, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav expressed his support for it and called on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to set aside politics and conduct a nationwide caste census.
Akhilesh Yadav took to X and said “Bihar caste-based census published: This is the mathematical basis of social justice. The caste census will not open a new path of 85-15 conflict but of cooperation and those who are not domineering but are supporters of everyone’s rights, they support and welcome it. Those who really want to get the rights, get the caste census done. The BJP government should leave politics and conduct a nationwide caste census.”
Akhilesh Yadav further stressed that conducting a caste census is a catalyst for the progress of the country. He explained that when people have knowledge of their population within various caste groups, it fosters self-confidence among them.
“When people come to know how many they are, then self-confidence awakens among them and also a social consciousness against social injustice, due to which their unity increases and they can overcome the obstacles coming in the way of their progress. They create new paths and also end the injustice being done by the traditional powerful people of the society. With this, the society moves on the path of equality and the country develops in an integrated manner. The caste census is the path to progress of the country,” Akhilesh Yadav said.
Earlier former Congress President Rahul Gandhi also endorsed the Caste census and vowed that Congress ruled states would conduct these surveys.
“We will not let anyone insult the Adivasis, Dalits or the OBC communities. We will get the Caste census done and ensure that they get their rightful due” said the Congress leader in a post on X. (ANI)
