Lalu, Mayawati slam Centre’s decision of not conducting caste census.

A day after the Centre informed the Supreme Court that a caste census in 2021 “would not be feasible”, Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav hit out at the Narendra Modi government over the decision.

Mayawati said the move has exposed the BJP’s electoral interests and duplicity when it comes to keeping their word. “The Central government’s refusal to conduct a caste census of backward classes by filing an affidavit in the Hon’ble Supreme Court is very serious and very contemplative, which exposes the OBC politics of BJP’s electoral interests and the difference in their words and deeds,” Mayawati said in a tweet in Hindi.
