THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kodikunnil Suresh MP, has requested the Union Government to set up a corporation for the welfare of economically backward among the forward communities on the lines of the corporation formed in Kerala.

Suresh said that Kerala Government had announced the setting up of a corporation for the welfare of economically backward among the forward communities. This is a step in the right direction.

Such corporations are needed in every state. This will ensure certain facilities to people who are economically backward but are deprived of these facilities because they belong to the forward communities.

There are crores of people in our country who are considered as forward class but are economically backward. They are also in need of government attention for their economic upliftment, he said.

Successive governments have taken steps for the welfare of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Communities and to some extent for minority communities but in their endeavour they have overlooked the fact that there are crores of people who belong to forward communities but are economically, socially and educationally backward. There are demands from various quarters in the country for their economic upliftment, Kodikunnil said.

He pointed out that the corporation can be set up with a corpus of Rs. 100 crore. Setting up of such a corporation will ensure educational, social and economic upliftment of economically backward people among the forward communities. This will also help in creating a right kind of atmosphere in the country, he said.
