Responding to BJP MLA Nilkanth SIngh Munda, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren has informed that the state government will issue caste certificates to students across classes within the next six months. Camps will be set up in all schools- both government and private- to complete the exercise after December 29, Soren told the assembly.
Munda raised the issue of difficulties being faced by students in getting caste certificates during the question hour. He alleged that though a large number of immigrants from Bangladesh are easily getting caste certificates and other government documents, Jharkhand residents have to face hardships in obtaining these.
The Chief Minister, however, responded that his government "does not work for the people of Bangladesh or any other country". He further assured that students will be issued caste certificates within the next six months.
"Our government strives to solve the problems of the common people… not a single student will face any difficulty with regards to caste certificate," Soren added.
