Adoni: Washermen on Thursday took out a huge rally in the town and submitted a memorandum to the Revenue Divisional Officer demanding the government to include them in the list of the SCs.

Later talking to media, washermen’s association leaders Siddappa and joint secretary C Nagaraju said 17 states in the country recognised the washermen as SCs and three states recognised them as the STs.

They contended that they are washing the linen of one and all in society to keep them neat and clean, while they are languishing in filth. Therefore, the association leaders contend that washermen should be included in the list of SCs for their political and social development.

Their demands include scholarships to students belonging to washermen community and allotment of special budget for them.
