SC/ST Act: Dalit factions stage protest in Kerala

Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala), Apr 09 (ANI): Amid the ongoing furore over the alleged dilution of the Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, Dalit organisations here staged a protest on Monday morning. A number of Dalit Organisations held the protest around Thampanoor railway station area and attempted to block vehicles along the way. The organisations demanded the SC/ST Act be reinstated, along with the cancellation of the Supreme Court's order in the matter. Following this, various Dalit groups called for a 'Bharat Bandh' to demand restoration of the Act to its original form.
