Leader of Opposition in Bihar assembly Tejashwi Yadav said the survey would begin in November this year

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that a caste-based census will be conducted in the state within a set time frame and that a cabinet decision soon will be taken. The announcement on Wednesday comes after an all-party meeting was held in Patna over the contentious issue.

“In the meeting, we unanimously decided that a caste-based census will be done in a set time frame. Soon a cabinet decision will be taken and it will be available in the public domain…” said Nitish Kumar.

Leader of Opposition in Bihar assembly Tejashwi Yadav, who also attended the all-party meet, however, clarified that it will be a caste-based survey and not a census. “It’s our win. Today we suggested (in the all-party meeting) that social anthropologists should be included in this. The central government should support it financially. This survey is in the interest of the people of Bihar,” he said.

Yadav further said that the RJD has demanded to introduce a bill in this regard in the next cabinet meeting and begin the survey in November this year. “During chhath puja, people who reside outside Bihar will also come to the state and till then we can complete preparations for it,” said the Yadav scion.
