NEW DELHI: Thanking the NDA government for fixing the flaws in the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan has said that the government has the ‘right leadership and a clear intention’ to improve the condition of backward sections of society.

“I’m confident that the NDA government, under the leadership of Narendra Modi ji, has the right leadership and strategy and a clear intention to accomplish this,” Paswan said.

He also said, “When I was a minister in 1999, I made the Prevention of Atrocities Act a law. I want to thank Narendra Modiji for fixing the flaws in the law. Today, it has been passed by the Parliament”.

While pointing out that the law was formulated 25 years ago, Paswan noted that it has failed to bring about a complete change because the previous regimes ‘lacked the intention’ to do it.

Paswan further said that the future strategy would focus on four places, where Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, who campaigned against social discrimination against untouchables, lived.

“Narendra Modi ji’s government has decided to develop all these areas and work for the weaker, backward and scheduled castes and tribes,” Paswan told the media.
