During interaction with the Sant, the SAD president related
how there was a feeling of despondency amongst the common man as well as Dalits
due to complete paralysis of social welfare schemes. He said the government had
forsaken the common man by increasing power bills to the tune of Rs 12,000
crores in two years. He said dalits were being discriminated with Shagun scheme
being stopped even as Rs 1140 crore is pending to old aged beneficiaries who
are not getting pensions. SC scholarship worth Rs 1285 crore has not been given
to SC students, he added. Sant Jhande said he would lead a movement to ensure
the down trodden and under privileged were not discriminated during Congress
rule.
