KC Venugopal: “Congress’ stand very clear on caste census, we are in favour of it”

"Congress' position on caste census is very clear, and we are in favor of it," said KC Venugopal


Following controversy caused by Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi’s post warning against “Jitni abadi utna haq” (rights based on population), party leader KC Venugopal stated on Tuesday that his party has a very clear position on the issue and is in favor of it.“Our party’s stand is very clear. We are for a caste census. Congress President and Rahul Gandhi have given statements on it,” KC Venugopal said.
Amid the row over issue, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi on Tuesday said that the idea of ‘the greater the population, the greater the rights’ will eventually push the country towards ‘majoritarianism’.

Singhvi claimed that the notion that “the greater the population, the greater the rights” will eventually push the nation towards “majoritarianism” in a previous post on social media platform X, which has since been deleted. Singhvi later clarified his remarks, saying that he had not deviated from his party’s stance on population-based rights.
