New Delhi: Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) leader Chirag Paswan has appealed to the well-off Dalits to give up reservation benefits, as lakhs of people across the country have done by opting for subsidy-free LPG in their domestic households.

Chirag, son of Union Minister Ram Vilas Pasawan said, people who are well-settled should voluntarily stop taking reservation benefits, as this would help the needy in getting more resources.

The LJP leader made the remarks while giving an interview to 'The Times of India'.

The actor-turned politician said he aims for a caste-free society.

When asked, whether the Bharatiya Janata Party is trying to attract the Dalits and the OBC voters in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh by giving some members of the particular castes key posts in the party, Chirag Paswan said, the timings of such appointments will be questioned.

He said that by bringing such leaders forward, BJP is sending out a good signal.

The LJP is a part of NDA government led by the BJP.

In 2017 politically sensitive Uttar Pradesh will go to polls. The caste factor will play a dominant role in the high-voltage elections.
