"The formation of the Mahadalit commission is
unconstiutional and it should be disbanded immediately,"
Paswan told reporters after addressing a sit-in demonstration
by the sweepers of Patna Municipal Corporation.
He said even the National SC Commission Chairman Buta
Singh had dubbed the commission as "unconstitutional" and the
state government had the Constitutional obligation to follow
the SC Commission's decision.
He also alleged that the Mahadalit Commission chairman
K P Ramaiah was working as a leader of a political party and
demanded his removal.
Paswan said his party would continue its agitation
seeking disbanding of the Mahadalit commission in Bihar.
He also urged the state government to regularise all the
sweepers working on contract in the municipal corporations in
Bihar and accord them the facilities at par with the grade IV
employees of the state government.
