Modi government ‘anti-Dalit’: AAP

Dec 7th, 2015 | Category: Articles

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday termed the Narendra Modi government at the Centre “anti-Dalit” and also called for the sacking of Union Minister V.K. Singh over his remarks in the wake of the Faridabad burning case.

The party also attacked Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar over the killing of two children and a teenager from the Dalit community recently in separate incidents in the State.

The SC/ST cell of the AAP held a candle-lit protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi. The party has filed a police complaint against Mr. Singh over his controversial comments.

“BJP and the Centre have been anti-Dalit and we will expose the party across the country,” said Dilip Pandey, convenor of AAP’s Delhi unit.

Referring to the death of a 15-year-old Dalit under mysterious circumstances in Haryana’s Sonepat, AAP leader Saurabh Bhardwaj said that the party does not trust the Haryana government or the Special Investigation Team constituted by it to probe the matter.

“The Chief Minister says that the death was a suicide. It prejudices the whole case. Union Minister V.K. Singh has made a shameful statement. If need arises, we will protest against Singh, the Haryana Chief Minister and even against the Prime Minister,” he said.

Delhi’s Social Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar, said, “There are growing atrocities against Dalits. We, people from Scheduled Caste, will fight the injustice against us.”
