BJP wants inequality: Congress; Lalu Prasad says it hates backwards.


A day after the government informed the Supreme Court that it would not be feasible to carry out a caste census, parties in the opposition questioned the BJP’s commitment to the Other Backward Classes (OBCs).

The Congress said the government wanted to “perpetuate the caste system”, and RJD leader Lalu Prasad said the BJP/RSS “hated” backwards. “They don’t want the real picture to come out, they don’t want a casteless society, they want inequality in the country to prevail… Their rule is like the British rule, the divide and rule policy. I am saying, let the real picture (on caste) come out…,” said M Veerappa Moily, head of a seven-member committee set up by Congress president Sonia Gandhi to study matters related to the caste census.
