Congress Dalit leader accuses PM Narendra Modi of having 'anti-Dalit mindset'

Congress Dalit leader accuses PM Narendra Modi of having 'anti-Dalit mindset'”

In line with Congress president Rahul Gandhi's accusation, Congress Dalit leader Kumari Selja said, "They are simply paying lip service to Babasaheb as the Prime Minister is prone to". "I got a message from a Congress convener at 8.30 pm that we have to gather at the DPCC office, from where we will leave for India Gate to join Rahul Gandhi", said Vijay Jatyan, state coordinator of the Delhi Congress.

Singhvi said the two incidents can not be termed "normal cases" and these cases have shamed the nation.

The party has also sought the resignation of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

The Congress reaction also came after several BJP leaders hit out at the opposition parties for "shedding crocodile tears" on the issue of safety of women. A week later, her body was found in the same area.

"When we talk about Unnao and Kathua rape cases, you could straight away see the politics in it".

She accused the government of dividing society in the name of food, religion, region and caste, adding that the BJP had no right to point a finger at the Congress.

Shelja said the Modi government had reduced budget allocation for schemes related to welfare of the Scheduled Castes and "whooping decrease" in number of jobs for them.

"You are robbing them of their scholarships, you are participating in conspiracies to dilute their reservations and then you are shedding crocodile tears in the name of Dalits", he said. Selja said paying "lip service to Ambedkar" can not obscure the truth that BJP was seeking to "erode the legacy of Ambedkar".

The notice ostensibly is in reference to the rape and murder of an eight-year old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua and the two BJP Ministers who defended the men arrested for the outrageous crime. "She must take back her words and apologise immediately".
