BJP's Dalit outreach in UP a pretence: Congress

BJP Faces Aggressive RJD Bid For Wooing Dalits In Bihar Jitan Ram Manjhi BJP's Dalit outreach in UP a pretence: Congress

"Ministers are paying several visits, even if mosquitoes bite them all night". "They have no time for him", he said. "BJP is good at promising but very poor in keeping them". BJP MP Udit Raj on Friday, May 5 slammed the move, by saying that MPs and MLAs eating at Dalit households would not give employment and protection to the community.

Yesterday, Raj had said the Dalit outreach programme would not bring any electoral gains to the party, rather it would make Dalits feel "inferior". "Only taking food at dalits' houses is not sufficient, send family members too to their homes and invite them at your home".

Bhagwat said eating at Dalit houses wasn't enough for communal harmony.

While Union minister Uma Bharti compared feeding Dalits to a self-purification activity, Rajendra Pratap, a senior minister in Uttar Pradesh, made a casteist comment comparing BJP leaders visiting Dalit houses to Lord Ram blessing Shabari (a Dalit) in the Ramayana.

Rana had rejected the allegation, saying, "The food was prepared in the village, by the villagers themselves".

Questioning the order in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh concerning advance information about Dalit weddings, he said: "One is forced to wonder as to what the police will do. Why only Dalit bhojs (meals) are hyped in the media and not similar events at places belonging to any other caste?" an angry Phoole had told PTI. Now, the BJP is walking its footsteps.

She further said that the ministers felt "satisfaction" after visiting Dalits in villages and staying at their homes despite the inconveniences. "It is in their nature and then they say that are working for the welfare of the Dalits", he added.

"I didn't even know they are coming for dinner".

While the BJP-led NDA is seen to be a favourite of upper castes and a number of intermediary castes, the two largest voting blocks of Yadavs and Muslims are seen to strongly backing the RJD. "People won't be fooled, they know the truth", the BSP supremo had stated.

The BJP's eating at "Dalit houses" campaign is not welcomed by many, including leaders from the inside of the party. The BSP is seeking to regain its lost ground, with the 2019 parliamentary elections barely few months away.
