Congress President Rahul Gandhi said, “To keep Dalit at the lowest notch in Indian society is in the DNA of RSS/ Modi.”
Many states across India are witnessing the Bharat Bandh today called by several Dalit organizations to protest the amendments proposed by the Supreme Court in the SC/ST Act. While the Modi government under pressure from its own Dalit MPs and Ministers will be filing a review petition challenging the order, the opposition Indian National Congress has stepped up its attack on PM Modi.
दलितों को भारतीय समाज के सबसे निचले पायदान पर रखना RSS/BJP के DNA में है। जो इस सोच को चुनौती देता है उसे वे हिंसा से दबाते हैं।
हजारों दलित भाई-बहन आज सड़कों पर उतरकर मोदी सरकार से अपने अधिकारों की रक्षा की माँग कर रहे हैं।
हम उनको सलाम करते हैं।#BharatBandh

Congress President Rahul Gandhi today took it to twitter to slam BJP. He said, “To keep Dalits at the lowest notch in Indian society is in the DNA of RSS/ Modi.” Further lashing out at the BJP, he alleged that the Modi government uses violence against those who challenge this thinking. Expressing the support of Congress to the Dalit agitation, he said that the Congress salutes the thousands of Dalit brother-sister who have taken to streets demanding protection of their rights.

On the other hand, Mumbai Congress has shared a report on Twitter and has alleged that the Dalit atrocities have risen under the rule of BJP. It alleged that the ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’ agenda of Modi government stands exposed as the “BJP Ruled States are ahead in crime against Dalits”.
The Dalits are protesting against the amendment introduced by the Supreme Court regarding the arrests under the SC/ST(Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
