Politics in the name of Dalits should be stopped. Whenever an incident happens, both BJP and Congress started doing politics over it, points out the BSP chief.

They should rise above petty politics and work for the development of backward sections, she adds.

Even after 69 years of independence, members of Dalit community haven't got half of the socio-economic benefits, says Mayawati.

When BJP came to power with full majority in 2014, we had hoped that they will address Dalit issue. Even bill hasn't been passed yet, she adds. 

On one hand, BJP did a lot of things to celebrate Ambedkar Jayanti and assured Dalits that they will do a lot to celebrate it. On the other hand, Dalits still do not have reservation rights in the private sector," she further says.

Justice should be done in Gujarat. It is not enough to just send the Gujarat CM to meet them. Action needs to be taken against authorities which were negligent. Officers who were responsible for Una incident should be sacked: Mayawati

Unfortunate that discrimination against Dalits in the country hasn't ended despite BJP, Congress long tenure after independence, says Mayawati.

Even after the Constitution was laid down by Baba Ambedkar, Dalits still have not received their full rights: Mayawati

16:26 PM

BSP chief Mayawati says, everyone talks about the atrocities on Dalits in Parliament, but nothing happens practically. 

BJP themselves should get case registered against Dayashankar Singh, she adds.

15:33 PM

A mindset is being created by the Modi government to target Dalits, says Sitaram Yechury.
