Paswan, leader of the Lok Janshankti Party (LJP), said his party feels that private companies, who have been availing benefits from the government, should provide reservation to Dalits in employment.
The Union minister also made a strong pitch for increasing state and Central budgetary allocation for SCs and Scheduled Tribes, in proportion to their population.
"There should also be enhanced representation to the backward classes in judiciary," Paswan told PTI here.
The Modi government at the Centre is committed to welfare of Dalits, Paswan said. Development of Chaityabhumi at Mumbai and Deekshabhumi at Nagpur are being expedited, coinciding with the 125th birth anniversary of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar, he added.
