Anniversary of Article 370 abrogation: One year on, Valmiki Dalits in J&K await government package

India Today

For the oppressed Valmiki Dalits in Jammu and Kashmir, the abrogation of Article 370 had brought freedom and domicile status. For the first time in three generations, they became eligible for government jobs. However, one year on, Valmikis await a government package to uplift them out of decades-old state-approved slavery.

"We need a quota for jobs and education, to make a beginning. Domicile certificate has arrived, we are now formally residents of J&K. But the start is not as easy. Reservation may benefit us to prepare for future opportunities," said Eklavya, a graduate and law aspirant.
