Raj: BJP starts campaign with an eye on ST votes
Jaipur: In an obvious bid to woo Scheduled Tribe voters, state unit of BJP on Saturday said the community should be given reservation based promotion in jobs.
BJP`s ST Morcha has started a three-day training programme in different districts from yesterday.
National president of BJP`s ST Morcha, Faggan Singh Kulaste, today said the training programme would yield positive results during election time.
"We began a training programme here yesterday in which members of the Morcha are being given training on how to regain our strength. ST`s play an important role in victory and we hope that during next Assembly elections in the state, we would be able to win most of the seats reserved for ST candidates," Kulaste told reporters here.
After addressing party workers here, he said the Morcha was quite hopeful of winning majority of seats in the state in next Assembly and Parliamentary polls.
Kulaste also advocated for "reservation in promotion for ST candidates."
