Dalits want constitution to incorporate their voices

Surkhet, August 3:

Demanding that issues raised by them be incorporated in new constitution, Dalits of Surkhet took out a rally in here yesterday.

These Dalits work for high-caste people, but food grain and money they get is not enough to make a decent living. Addressing a meeting organised after the rally, Victims of Public Service Development Programme coordinator Thagiram Damai said Balighare Dalits were in a pitiable state. Our annual income is not enough to feed us for three months, he said.

The Dalits demanded that political parties launch programmes for their welfare.
