BJP's aim is all-round development of scheduled caste people, who constitute 18 percent of the population, national president of scheduled caste wing of BJP Sanjay Paswan said at a press conference.

"People belonging to the marginalized sections are aggressively joining our party and we are trying to address their issues," Paswan said.
He said the four sections of marginalized classes—the SCs, Tribals, Other Backward Classes and Minorities—were competing among each other for their rights.
"But the scheduled caste people are the most marginalized lot in the country," he said.
Paswan said around 50 percent of scheduled caste families were now being deprived of any single benefit of reservation and 'reservation' had become a disfigured word.
"If the BJP comes to power, we will ensure that every single SC family gets the benefits due to them," he said.

The BJP would leave no stone unturned to develop the lives of scheduled castes people. The funds under various schemes meant for them were not reaching them across the country, he said.

Paswan is to attend a conference of SC communities at Alappuzha under the banner of BJP on Thursday. BJP state president V Muraleedharan was also present at the press conference.
