Kolkata, July 20 (IANS) West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday condemned the thrashing of Dalit youths in Gujarat’s Una and demanded the centre to ensure protection of Dalits.
“Incident in Una is organised crime against Dalits. This is unacceptable. I urge the Central government to treat Dalits with care and give them full protection,” said Banerjee.
The Trinamool also raised the matter in parliament seeking a discussion on the matter.
Gujarat’s Saurashtra has been on the boil since the last week’s assault on a group of Dalits by a vigilante cow protection group in Una for allegedly killing a cow.
