'Dalit development projects overthrown'

The UDF government should recognise that the Dalit development projects have been overthrown for the last 35 years, SC/ST Education Development Samithi said.
Statistical data from Kerala Institute of Local Administration (KILA) show that the budget allocation for SC/ST development is not reaching the deserved people.
According to a study by KILA, 55% from the scheduled caste are living in an appalling condition in 26,198 colonies and 71,368 persons are completely destitute. The grievances of the Dalit were discussed in a workshop conducted in Thrissur in 2011. But still the government is not ready to take up the issues of Dalits.
The Samithi is planning a strike in front of the secretariat on May 23.
