Leaders of Dalit communities yesterday said the allocation for their development in the next budget is very poor.
Allocating Tk 14.61 crore is not sufficient for about seven million people of the community in the country, they said.
Urging the government to ensure proper utilisation of the allocation, they said previous allocations had put very little impact in the lives of the Dalits.
They made the remarks at a press conference jointly organised by Self Help Association for Rural People through Education and Entrepreneurship (Sharee), Oxfam, and Bangladesh Dalit Women Movement at Jatiya Press Club in the capital.
