Government aim is to repress, suppress India: Congress MP on Dalit issue

New Delhi, Aug 11 (IANS) Discussing the issue of atrocities against Dalits in the Lok Sabha on Thursday, Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia trained his guns at the central government and said its aim is to “suppress India” and “repress India”.

The Member of Parliament from Guna in Madhya Pradesh, in an impassioned speech, said, “You asked to scrap reservations for Dalits… you can’t be on this side and that side. You need to take a stand based on principles.”

He asked what was the significance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rebuke to those committing atrocities against Dalits when they don’t listen to him.

“Fringe has become centre and centre has become fringe,” he said, and emphasised, that if proper actions had been taken after the Dadri lynching then the Una incident wouldn’t have happened.
