Bengaluru: Social Welfare Minister H Anjaneya on Wednesday said that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will shortly convene a meeting with Dalit leaders to take a decision on according internal reservation to Scheduled Castes.

Speaking to reporters after garlanding B R Ambedkar’s statue to mark Ambedkar Parinirvana Day in Bengaluru, Anjaneya said, “The Chief Minister will convene a meeting comprising representatives from both sides – those demanding the reservation, and those who are opposing it, and arrive at a suitable decision.”

The minister said that certain sections were trying to spread misinformation that the government might not consider all 101 castes under SC for internal quota. “There is no question of dropping any castes,” he said.

He said that the Justice A J Sadashiva Inquiry Commission, which looked into methods of equitable distribution of reservation facilities among Scheduled Castes (SCs), had recommended internal reservation. It had also asked the state government to take up the matter with the Centre for bringing about a suitable law by the Parliament to incorporate the recommendation.
