  THE MARGINALIZED Dalits embark on challenging journey with hopes in the new constitution  
  BY KAMAL PARIYAR  
 
As the percentage of Dalit representation in the present Constituent Assembly (CA) declined in comparison to their numbers in the first CA, the hopes of the Dalit community has somehow dimmed, with the apprehension that the voice of the deprived community and other disadvantaged groups would be least heard. The community is worried not only for a less inclusive CA compared to the first one but also is considerably depressed with the fear that the achievements made during the first CA would perhaps not be preserved.

In the first CA elections held in 2008, seven candidates from the Dalit communities were elected from all of the 240 constituencies, with altogether 50 Dalit members. But the numbers of Dalit lawmaker in the second CA is only two from direct elections, and the number is down to 41, including through proportional representation.
