Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren writes to PM Modi, seeks all-party meet on caste census.

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren Wednesday told the Assembly that he has sent a letter to the Prime Minister for an all-party meeting to demand caste enumeration of the country’s population in the upcoming Census.

Leaders of political parties in Bihar, too, have raised similar demands.

Soren also announced the formation of an Assembly committee to investigate the implementation of Santhal Pargana Tenancy Act and Chotanagpur Tenancy Act which don’t allow transfer of tribal land to non-tribals. Former chief minister Raghubar Das, too, had attempted to tweak both the laws which resulted in protests across the state in 2016-17.
