CPI advocates reservation for lower castes in private sectorFebruary 24th, 2009 - 10:18 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb 24 (ANI): Ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections the Communist Party of India (CPI) General Secretary, A. B. Bardhan, on Tuesday said that his party would demand reservation for lower castes in the private sector.
We are demanding to extend the horizon of the reservation in the private sector, as it is in the case of Government departments and allied institutions, Bardhan said on the sidelines of a rally organised by National Conference of Dalit Organisation (NACDOR) here.
The CPI leader urged the rally to elect a party of their own choice but advised them to keep distance from Congress and BJP.
We have decided that whoever you want to choose, it is entirely your own choice. But do not go for Congress or BJP. In the month of May, you will see a Government of non-congress and non-BJP parties, Bardhan said.
Lok Sabha election are expected to be held sometime in May. (ANI)
