Stop this Dalit 'Bhoj Tamasha', RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat to BJP

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat

Raj's statements comes at a time when Uttar Pradesh cabinet ministers like Suresh Rana, Rajendra Pratap Singh and Anupama Jaiswal have already brought embarrassment to the BJP in the state by making comments which defeats the objective of the outreach program. He said the way Lord Ram blessed Shabari (a Dalit) by eating his berries, BJP leaders were also blessing Dalits by going to their homes. If someone has been assigned two places, he says no, I want to go to four. But is it the solution?

Claiming that the conviction rate in cases of atrocities against Dalits in Bihar is merely 0.36 per cent and non-execution of reservation for them in promotion in government jobs, Manjhi said the community is faced with a constitutional and political crisis.

Raj, a dalit, who had converted from Hinduism to Buddhism in 2001, also cited an analogy to assert his point.

BJP MP Sadhvi Savitri Bai Phoole, however, had said politicians rushing to Dalit households to have dinner with them but ordering food, utensils and even waiters from outside is an "insult" to the people belonging to the weaker sections.

Besides Yeddyurappa, who is the BJP's CM candidate in the Karnataka elections, the video also shows Union Minister and Karnataka leader Anant Kumar Hegde's footage in which he is seen speaking on changing the Constitution. "This is causing a reaction", Raj was quoted as saying.

Earlier this week, a controversy erupted after UP government minister Suresh Rana reportedly brought with him his own food and water at a dinner hosted at a Dalit household in Aligarh.

RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat advised BJP leaders to stop doing "drama" of eating meals at Dalits' homes, and instead invite them to their houses, reported TOI.

Another Uttar Pradesh minister has sparked a controversy on Friday while talking about visiting Dalit homes and braving mosquito bites to ensure the people receive government benefits.

After the unprecedented nationwide protests by Dalit community on 2 April over dilution of the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) launched the "dinner-at-Dalit-house" campaign to regain lost ground among the community.
