Chhattisgarh: Men Protest Nude In Raipur, Demand Action Against Employees With Fake Caste Certificates

The opening day of the Chhattisgarh assembly session coincided with a “nude” protest by young men who came to the streets naked to draw attention to the problem of fraudulent caste certificates being used to gain entry into government positions in the state.
