Patna: Supporting the demand for
caste-based census, NCP President Sharad Pawar today said
it should be carried out for the development of the people.

"The NCP favours conduct of a caste-based census for
development of the people," Pawar told a state-level
conference of NCP workers here.
The enumeration of the number of castes should be
carried out to ensure their development and not for pursuing

His party has given the nod for caste-based census
after its opinion was by sought on the issue by the UPA
government, he said.
