Dalit representative should be a Minister: Hegde
"If at a Dalit is to be included in the panel, it should be one of the Dalit Ministers from the government," he told reporters here.
His comments came in the backdrop of Mayawati`s demand for inclusion of a Dalit representative in the Lokpal drafting committee
Hegde, who is a member of the committee, had yesterday said, "if you have to have any caste-wise representation, then this committee can never be constituted."
Another panel member Arvind Kejriwal also said the government could replace one of the five ministers with a dalit representative.
