Congress Urges PM Modi to Address Caste-Based Census in Bihar Visit

Patna: The Congress launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of his visit to Bihar to inaugurate various development projects, urging him to address the issue of caste-based census in his speech. Jairam Ramesh, Congress general secretary in-charge communications, criticized the PM, anticipating him to disseminate falsehoods during his address.

In a Hindi post on X, Ramesh urged the PM to address the significant issue of socio-economic caste census amidst his anticipated statements. He posed four questions to the PM, questioning the delay in conducting the regular census, scheduled for 2021, and the non-disclosure of caste-related data from the 2011 Socio-Economic Caste Census.

Ramesh also questioned the vision of the new NDA government in Bihar regarding social and economic justice for disadvantaged communities highlighted in the census. He reiterated Congress's commitment to conducting a nationwide comprehensive socio-economic caste census if voted to power in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Caste census has been a central theme for the Congress in the upcoming general elections. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to launch infrastructure-related projects worth around Rs. 12,800 Crores in Bettiah, West Champaran district. Among these projects, he will inaugurate Indian Oil's Muzaffarpur - Motihari LPG Pipeline, aiming to provide cleaner cooking fuel in Bihar and neighboring Nepal. Additionally, he will dedicate Indian Oil's LPG Bottling Plant & storage terminal at Motihari, facilitating smoother supply chains and strategic export opportunities to Nepal.
