Sangh Parivar fanning agitations of various communities demanding reservation accuses Siddaramaiah

Bengaluru: Former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday alleged that Sangh Parivar leaders were fanning the agitation of various communities in the State demanding reservation, to ‘mislead’ their struggle for social justice.

Various communities led by their seers have intensified their ongoing agitation in Karnataka, demanding reservation and categorisation as Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribes.

In a series of tweets, the Congress stalwart advised people not to fall prey to the ”mischievous misdeeds of the Sangh Parivar” who are trying to create conflict in society.”

”Always opposed to reservation, is the BJP leaders’ outcry for reservation to various communities a genuine one? Or is it another political tactic to mislead the struggle for social justice?” Siddaramaiah asked.

It was not clear who the outfits, allegedly backed by BJP, were targetting, since it was the party-led government at the State and Centre, he said.

”Why is the Sangh Parivar sponsoring the congregation of various castes which had organised a Hindu Samajotsava”, he asked.

Various communities such as Panchamasali Lingayat, Valmiki, Kuruba and Idigas have intensified their demand for more reservation in government jobs and other sectors.

The Panchamasali sect has been demanding Category 2Astatus within Other Backward Communities, the Kurubas for ST status and Idigas, for SC status.

The Valmiki community wants reservation for them to be increased from three per cent to 7.5 per cent.
