The Naveen Patnaik Government has always acted against Backward Class people, Dalits and Adivasis during the last 20 years, alleged Samajik Nyaya Abhijan convenor Debiprasad Prusti here on Thursday.
Prusti said this while expressing his reaction on the State OBC Commission formed by the Chief Minister on Wednesday.
“The Naveen Patnaik Government didn’t implement the Mandal Commission recommendations of 27-per cent reservation for OBCs during its 20 years of rule. As a result, thousands of Backward Class students have been debarred from medical and engineering studies and from getting Government jobs during the period. Dalits and Tribals have also been deprive of their rights,” alleged Prusti in a statement.
