About The Video

  • A delegation of Bihar’s political parties led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday to discuss their demand of a caste-based census. Since 1941 every census published in India had data on Scheduled Castes & Scheduled Tribes but not on OBCs or Other Backward Class. Several communities in India have time and again demanded reservation under the OBC category. There are many arguments both in favour & against a caste-based census. In this video, we decode what a caste-based census is, why political parties are demanding it & where the BJP led central government stands on it. Watch the full video for more details.
