Congress MLA Verka demands Dalit CM candidate in Punjab Assembly Elections 2022

Amid the ongoing feud in the Punjab Congress, another party leader has now started singing his rhyme.

Amritsar MLA Raj Kumar Verka has demanded to elect next Chief Minister of the state from the Dalit community. In a recent interview to a channel, MLA Verka said if Congress would appoint Dalit CM then the community would hail the decision.

He further added that Congress has always taken the Dalit issues diligently and it would continue to do so.  

When asked if Congress would give a chance to a Dalit face to represent the state Verka said, “this approach will help strengthen the Dalit community in the state and will ensure them a sense of security.”

“People have started demanding their rights. Likewise, the Dalit community has also started to voice out for their right which is not wrong at all,” he added.

Furthermore, Verka said that people from the Dalit community have excelled in various sectors.
