Dear Comrade,

The process of Budget making and the formulation of schemes and programmes do not get the voice of common people. The marginalized communities like SCs, STs, Women and Minorities are purposely driven out of the whole economic development .The Budget which will be presented on 29 February is not our budget, We boycott this Budget. We invite you to take part in the Dharna on 27 and 28 February 2008 which will be followed by the mass rally on 29 Feb.2008 at Jantar Mantar, Delhi under the Banner of SCs/STs Budget Hissedari Aandolan.

This event is the latest in the series of rallies focusing on the challenges that Scheduled Caste (SC) community is facing in the new economic environment. The aim of this rally is the social protest against the discriminatory behaviour of Union of India and States/UTs with the SC community in non allocation and non implementation of Scheduled Caste Sub Plan. In the last year there was a SCSP gap of Rs. 20280 croes of rupees – in one year alone. That too in the plan allocation only. Similarly all States and Union Territories have denied the legitimate amounts to SCs which is thousands of crores. This year there is bound to be another Rs. 45,000 crores of rupees. This is real untouchability being practiced by the Union Govt and the states in total. This is only in the allocations amounts. The actual release of the demands and the actual expenditure spend directly on the families and individuals is abysmally low.

We demand an immediate enquiry by the CAG and action against all those who are willfully causing this denial and exclusion.

Your participation will support our movement and realize the budget making from the below.

Your confirmation by return mail or by phone will be highly appreciated.
