JAMMU, MAY 04:
In line with the spirit of the policies of the government in uplifting of the weaker sections of the society, Jammu and Kashmir Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes & Backward Classes Development Corporation has undertaken multi -faceted programmes to usher in economic freedom in the said sections of the society.
Minister of State in the PMO, Dr Jitendra Singh said that it was the dream of Dr Ambedkar that the benefits of the democracy should percolate to the lowest strata of the society while framing the Constitution. He ruled that even after seven decades, the weaker sections of the society are still deprived with nobody to attend to their plight. He added that it was only after the Modi government came into power that concrete policies of the government targeted at the weaker sections are now bearing fruit.
