Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), students dream of working in major companies of the world, but 50 alumni from different IITs across the country have formed a political party to leave jobs for the backward classes of the society. These students have formed a party to fight the rights of Scheduled Castes-ST (SC-ST) and Other Backward Classes (OBC).
The group, which is awaiting the approval of the Election Commission, has named his political organization Bahujan Azad Party (BAP). The leadership of this group has been making newcomers who completed graduation from IIT-Delhi 3 years ago. He said, ‘We have a group of 50 people. All are from different IITs, who have left their full time jobs to work for the party. We have filed an application in the EC for approval and are working at the grassroots level. ”
Party members do not want to jump in the electoral field in a hurry. He said that his purpose is not to contest the 2019 Lok Sabha election. Kumar said, “We do not want to do any work in haste and we do not want to become a small organization with great ambition.” We will start from the 2020 Bihar assembly elections and then we will decide the next Lok Sabha election. ”
Members of this organization are mainly from SC, ST and OBC class who believe that the backward classes have not got their due right in terms of education and employment. The party has started publicizing social media by photographing many other leaders including Bhimrao Ambedkar, Subhash Chandra Bose and APJ Abdul Kalam. Kumar said, “Once registered, we will create small units of the party which will start working at grass root level for our target groups. We do not want to present ourselves as a political party or ideology rival. “
