All India Congress Committee member and former MLA Salman Syed has released the brochure on 'Dalit Chaitanyam' (awakening of Dalits) at a function held at the Congress office here today under the aegis of INTUC SC cell.


He said Congress was wedded to the upliftment of downtrodden and brought several enactments for their welfare including the SC/ST atrocities prevention act and the SC/ST sub plan.

"Congress also was committed to the upliftment of the Christian and Muslim minorities extending educational facilities to them. The credit for issuing identity cards to the workers of unorganised sector besides the insurance coverage would alone go to congress," he said.

"Hence people are looking forward for the continuance of Congress rule both at the Centre and the State for their all round progress," he added.

INTUC district unit president Sabbati Phaneswerarao, district SC cell chairman Kanikella Suryanarayana, PCC member Arif Ahmed and city congress vice president SK Abdulla spoke underlining the need for everyone extending support to congress in the present elections.

The polling is scheduled here on May 17.
