New Delhi: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday said the state government will release the caste census data soon.

Siddaramaiah, who was here to meet senior Congress leaders to apprise them of the Assembly bypolls results, told journalists that he has already held a discussion with Karnataka Backward Classes Commission officials and they have agreed to finalise the data at the earliest.

The commission is compiling the data of Bengaluru Urban and Rural districts. Once the Commission submits its report, the state government will make the details public, he said.

With the Assembly polls due early next year, Siddaramaiah had earlier said that his government was contemplating providing reservation commensurate with the population, based on the outcome of the caste census.

There is a demand to increase the reservation in proportion to the population and he too is keen on this, he said.
