In the year 1997, five anti-reservation orders were issued by the government leading to a tumultuous situation in the country. Organizations with different intellectuals and departments from all over the country joined hands and All India Confederation of SC/ST Organization was formed. Dr. Udit Raj was appointed as its National president. Under his leadership, various campaigns were initiated and demonstrations were held all over the country against anti-reservation orders. Various national level rallies were organized in Delhi during 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000. The media created competition between the rallies organized by him and BSP, which Dr Udit Raj turned in his favour.
It was due to his efforts that the Atal Bihari Government passed the 81st, 82nd and 85th Constitutional amendments, which in turn led to the retrieval of reservation benefits. Following in the footsteps of Dr Ambedkar, Dr. Udit Raj has been assiduously working for a casteless society, free from all discrimination and divisive system of the Hindu caste hierarchy.
Dr. Udit Raj joined the Bhartiya Janta Party after he was convinced of its sincere interest in the inclusive growth of all sections of the society including the welfare of the SC/ST and backward sections, besides upholding the integrity and unity of the nation. The poor performance of the corruption-ridden Congress Party, particularly in the last decade, both in respect of the economy and the welfare of vast multitudes of people, has also been greatly responsible for moulding his opinion in favour of BJP.
