Condemning the decision to amend the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1989, members of various Dalit outfits and organisations staged a demonstration here on Tuesday.

Led by P.P. Palanisamy, district secretary, Tamil Nadu Untouchability Eradication Front, members said that the Supreme Court had laid down stringent norms before registering a case under the SC/ST Act that was in place from 1989. They wanted both the Central government and the Supreme Court to annex the Act to the 9th Schedule of the Constitution.



As part of the National Resistance Day, called by various political parties and other organisations to protest against the recent Supreme Court judgement imposing conditions regarding implementation of Scheduled Castes / Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, a demonstration was organised demanding the safeguarding of the Act here on Tuesday.
