JAMMU, May 29: The OBC Department of J&K Pradesh Congress Committee led by its chairman Suresh Dogra held protest demonstration in Jammu East against the Modi led BJP Government and UT Administration for ignoring of OBCs of J&K, who are still deprived  of their legal and constitutional rights.
Dogra said that the Other Backward Classes people who are in god strength in J&K as well as in India, have become a vote bank for the BJP by the false propaganda of Hinduism by RSS & BJP and when they demand their legal, political and constitutional rights, they are ignored.
He said that the OBC status and the Mandal Commission report which guarantees 27% reservation and extension of National Commission for Backward Classes were totally ignored, which is the provision of UT. After the abrogation of Article 370 and formation of UT, the Centre Govt has implemented all national laws in the newly carved UT of Jammu and Kashmir but it is very unfortunate that the national laws for the OBCs were not implemented.
The said community who was continuously fighting for their legal and constitutional rights for last three decades were expecting their due demands would be fulfilled in the UT but again got disappointed by the rationalization of reservation policy of the ruling party.
Dogra alleged that BJP is popular for the party of the capitalists, it never remained in favour of down trodden and weaker section. It befooled the under privileged and innocent class on the name of this reservation policy 2004. The Prime Minister Modi who has fetched the votes on the name of OBC and claimed himself belongs to this community, is the real enemy of this section of society.
He demanded OBC status in the J&K UT, the Chairman and Members in the SCBC must be from the same community and extension of NCBC,column for OBC in the  caste based census in India.
Prominent who were present included Parshotam Mehra (Vice Chairman), Vijay Kumar (Gen Secy), Jagdish Kashyap, Janak Raj, Raj Kumar Khanmotra, Sourav Mehra and others.
