Members of All India Christian Council led by Bishop Udumula Bala took out a rally and staged a demonstration at Ambedkar statue to observe ‘Black Day’.
They demanded reservations for Dalit Christians which they say were denied by the 1950 Presidential Order.
The Dalits, who were converted into other religions were denied privileges and rights guaranteed by the Constitution. Public interest litigation was filed in the Supreme Court, which was pending.
Meanwhile, the successive governments agreed to extend reservations to Dalits, who were converted into other religions, but it remained a mere promise over the decades, said council secretary Franklin Sudhakar.
