Lucknow:

In a setback for Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, the Allahabad High Court on Tuesday stayed UP government's order to include 17 sub-castes in the Scheduled Caste category.

In December 2016, a Cabinet meeting chaired by Akhilesh had cleared the proposal to include Kahar, Kashyap, Kewat, Nishad, Bind, Bhar, Prajapati, Rajbhar, Batham, Gaur, Tura, Majhi, Mallah, Kumhar, Dheemar and Machua sub-castes in the Scheduled Caste category.

Criticising the Samajwadi Party government's assent to include 17 Other Backward Castes in the Scheduled Castes (SC) list, Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati had then it as a "mere drama".
