DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Sunday asked the Centre to ensure job reservation for Dalits in the private sector and said his party had adopted resolutions in this regard.

Referring to reports that the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre is taking up several initiatives to protect the Dalit community and provide quota in private sector jobs, he said, "I urge the Centre to come up with a detailed execution plan on implementation of the scheme that does not remain on paper."

The Centre is taking such steps with an eye on the upcoming Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, Karunanidhi was quoted as saying in the release and welcomed it.

DMK had included the Dalit reservation issue in its 2014 Lok Sabha poll manifesto and the party adopted resolutions in this regard in the past as well, he said.
