Thousands of castes found in the country after Mandal commission: Tejashwi
After the meeting, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said, ‘Ten party people from all over Bihar have come together in the interest of the nation. This will be a historic work. After the Mandal commission, it came to know that thousands of castes are present in the country. When trees and animals are counted, why not have a caste census?’ He said, ‘The government does not have the figures. For the first time, all the parties, including BJP, through a state.
