Prime Minister of India
Subject: Request to initiate process to give statutory status to Special Component Plan and Tribal Sub Plan
Respected Manmohan Jee
As we have been observing the lapses in implementation in the Special Component Plan and Tribal Sib Plan both by the Central government as well as the state government is one of the major impediment for not able to achieve the target that kept for in 14th Loksabha for the development of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes of the country
We would like you to recall Mrs. Indira Gandhi’s desire in giving these policy guidelines in the year 1979 for the overall development of scheduled caste and scheduled tribes also to reduce the increasing number of atrocities on them
Though 30 years have passed while working towards this desire of Mrs. Gandhi. The progress that we have made towards this is not significant, hence
We request you to initiate the process of giving statutory status to Special Component Plan and Tribal Sub Plan immediately this is also in line with the 11th 5 years plan recommendation of the planning commission and also several discussions that going on in articulating the 12th 5 year plan.
We like to welcome the step taken by Mrs. Sonia Gandhi the chairmen of the National Advisory Council and United Progressive Alliance in favor of this legislation.
Keeping in view of the millions of SC and ST’s development we strongly recommend for a central legislation to this effect
Thanking you in anticipation
