New Delhi: The All India Backward and Minority Communities Employees Federation (BAMCEF) has called for a Bharat Bandh on May 25 to protest its demand for a caste-based census and to stop the use of EVMs during elections. In addition, the federation said that it also wants reservation for SC/ST/OBC in the private sector.
Bahujan Mukti Party, Bahujan Kranti Morcha and others have extended their support to the Bharat Bandh call given by BAMCEF.
The bandh has also been called for demanding a law guaranteeing MSP to farmers, non-implementation of NRC/CAA/NPR and re-introduction of the old pension scheme.
Also, they are demanding separate electorate in OBC reservation in Panchayat elections in Odisha and Madhya Pradesh. The organizations said that tribal people should not be displaced under the guise of environmental protection.
