Opposition Unites Behind Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin in Push for Caste Census in India

M K Stalin, Chief Minister of the State, has joined forces with other political figures from around the nation to advocate for a caste census to be conducted across the country. This would help ensure that reservation policies are effectively managed and social justice is promoted.

On Monday, Stalin, a powerful force for social justice, called together several opposition leaders to join forces in order to battle against the BJP. He highlighted the importance of collaboration among those who oppose the saffron party in order to ensure the upliftment of the OBCs, SCs, and STs.

Stalin addressed the opening of the All-India Federation of Social Justice’s inaugural national conference, where he expressed outrage against the BJP’s decision to abolish the 4% reservation for minorities in Karnataka. He called their 10% reservation for economically weaker sections a “deceitful measure” that circumvented the constitutional mandate of reserving such benefits for socially and educationally backward sections. The Tamil Nadu chief minister denounced the BJP’s action as “daylight murder of social justice”.

He strongly urged for the placement of the results of the census into the public domain, advocating for its monitoring at both the state and national levels. It was his belief that the information from the census should be made available to the public.

Non-BJP parties asserted their stance in the hybrid conference, with the DMK spearheading the meeting. Leaders like Ashok Gehlot, Hemant Soren and Tejaswi Yadav were present in a bid to unite for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Stalin took the stage to promote opposition unity, a show of strength against the BJP, as well as his own image on the national political scene. All who attended praised him for his dedication to social justice, exemplifying the need for a united front to stand strong against the ruling party.

“The struggle for social justice is not an issue of a single state, nor of a set of a few states. It is an issue concerning all states,” said Stalin.

Tejaswi Yadav called for a caste census to tackle BJP’s divisive politics, while Ashok Gehlot and Hemant Soren highlighted the oppression of OBCs. He noted that Bihar has already announced a caste-based survey to further social justice.

The need for social security for all was voiced, with Gehlot urging like-minded parties to push the Centre to conduct a caste census. Soren chided PM Modi, saying the government had gone from “no corruption” to “inaction”. IUML’s Basheer and RJD’s Jha echoed this plea. Derek O’Brien applauded Stalin’s initiative and called on BJD and YSR Congress to join forces, adding that it was “time to be black or white”.
