BJP MP Udit Raj on Tuesday demanded reservation for Dalits in sports, including in the national cricket team. “We demand Dalit reservation in all sports!” the Dalit leader said in a tweet.

He said Dalits have been talking about their representation in the Indian cricket team following a law enacted by South Africa that at least five players of colour should be part of its cricket team.
