New Delhi, May 22, 2012: They threatened to launch a massive protest if their demands are not met.

Dalit activists staged a demonstration here Monday in support of their demand for reservation for the community in promotions.

They threatened to launch a massive protest if their demands are not met.

The protest was organised by All India Confederation of Schedule Caste/Schedule Tribe Organisations at Jantar Mantar, Delhi’s Hyde Park.

A R Joshi, chief patron of the confederation, said they were sending a memorandum to President Pratibha Patil and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in this regard.

“If we do not get positive response from them, then we’ll intensify our struggle,” he said.

Acting chairman of the confederation and representative of the All India SC/ST Railway Employees Association, Ashok Kumar said they want reservation not only in promotions but elsewhere also where none exists.

The protesters also demanded that the reservation be provided in private sector, higher education and judiciary.
