KOCHI: The Federation of SC and ST has threatened that its leaders will commit suicide in front of the Rashtrapati Bhavan in the second week of September in protest against the organised moves involving the Central Government, to include the minorities in the Scheduled Castes list.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, federation general secretary K K Krishnan Kutty said that both the Central and State Governments had meted out ill-treatment to them.

‘‘The governments are ignoring the SC and ST community and the latest example is the move by the Central Government to pass a Bill in Parliament to give Christians and Muslims the rights enjoyed by SC/STs, thereby, sidelining the already suffering community,’’ he said.

The reports of Justice Ranganatha Misra and Justice Rajinder Sachar were to cover up this move of the Central Government, the leaders said. The federation will take out a vehicle rally from Kasargod to gather support for the ‘suicide mission’ they are going to undertake in New Delhi.
