The much awaited Socio-Economic and Education Survey report, popularly known as the “caste census”, was submitted to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, by Karnataka State Commission for Backward Classes Chairman K Jayaprakash Hegde on Thursday, triggering a renewed debate within the Congress which appeared divided over the issue.


This comes amid objections to the report by certain sections of the society and also within the ruling Congress.

“We don’t know what is in the report. The government has received the report, it will be placed before the Cabinet, and will be discussed and decided there,” Siddaramaiah told reporters after receiving it.
