The Dalit and Harijan communities yesterday demanded budgetary allocations in different sectors to be set aside in this year’s budget for the downtrodden communities.
The communities urged the government to ensure special quotas and budgetary allocation in education and job sectors, as the communities are lagging behind due to lack of proper education system.
They made their demands at a view-exchange programme held at the Jatiya Press Club in the capital.
Bangladesh Harijan Oikya Parishad (BHOP) organised the event in association with human rights bodies Manusher Jonno Foundation and Friends Association for Integrated Revolution (Fair).
