General categories to inspire voters for use of NOTA in polling
Chandigarh(Narinder Jagga): Distressed by reservation, the General category will now inspire the people to use NOTA in the elections across the country. The general category has alleged that in the name of Dalit votes, the political parties across the country have been ignoring the general categories and no party is ready to speak in the favour them. The issue is about the amendment in SC atrocities act. General category has alleged that 75 percent case, registered under this act, are being proved false and this act is being used for its personal interest.Interacting with Media in the Chandigarh Press Club, the President of the General Categories Welfare Federation, Punjab, Sham Lal Sharma told that the Apex Court has given directions to stop the misuse of SC/St Atrocities act following the record of SC/ST act in the past. Sharma told that such amendment will help those who are being victimized by some vested interest persons. He said there should be a separate wing for the welfare of General Categories. Giving reference of Supreme Court judgement, he said that in the judgement on page number 29, it has been told that in 2015, there had been registered 15,638 cases of atrocities against SC and ST, but 11024 case found wrong , while 495 had withdrawn their cases, but only 4119 cases, in which the guilty had been convicted. Even during the session of Parliament, such question had been debated, but the issue had been left in the lurch as the person should be prosecuted or not, who had filed a false complaint. Sharma said, either BJP or Congress or any other party, has always stand by with the SC/SC community and ignored the general categories.
