Gorakhpur: NISHAD party has once again raised the issue of reservation for the fisherfolk community in Uttar Pradesh. National president of the party Sanjay Nishad, during a press conference on Thursday, said that the BJP government promised to give reservation to the Machuara and other fisherfolk societies. But the promise hasn’t been fulfilled yet, and people from the community are getting restless now.
Nishad added that people from the community would surround the residences of the BJP MPs on September 11 and demand reservation. It is to be noted Nishad’s own son Praveen Nishad is the sitting BJP MP of Sant Kabir Nagar.
“MPs are representatives of the people. The community will vote for the MPs only if the promise made to them fulfilled is waiting for the promise to be fulfilled and now people are asking that when their promise will be fulfilled,” he said.
“We’ll also demonstrate at Jantar Mantar, Delhi on September 25. The Uttrakhand government has issued an order stating that Shilpkar (skilled artisans) is not a caste but a group of castes. On the same lines, we want reservation and SC certificate for Machuara and other castes of fisherfolk,” added Nishad.
“The Congress had deceived us, and in the reign of the Samajwadi Party, a member of our society was killed in police firing during a demonstration for reservation on railway tracks. We are friends of the Bharatiya Janata Party and we extend our support to them. When chief minister Yogi Adityanath was the MP, he advocated for the reservation of Machhuara samaj in the parliament,” he said.
