Stating that the Centre wants to scrap reservation benefits, he said RJD would launch a movement to put pressure on the government to make the caste census public, besides making allocation in the budget as per their population.

Lalu said the party has decided to hold a three-day national workshop on May 2, 3 and 4 at Bodhgaya in Bihar where party workers would be apprised of BJP’s politics and ways to counter the party’s move.
