Mayawati, Faridabad, Faridabad Killings, Faridabad Dalit Killings, Faridabad dalit deaths, Faridabad dalit family, Faridabad family burnt, Haryana Govt, Khattar, Dalit deaths, Haryana News, India News Describing the killing of two Dalit children in Faridabad in Haryana as “shameful”, Mayawati said, “It shows insensitivity of the Haryana government.”

BSP chief Mayawati on Friday demanded the removal and arrest of Minister of State for External Affairs, General(retd) VK Singh, for his controversial remarks while commenting on the killing of two Dalit children in Faridabad.

The former UP chief minister told reporters in Lucknow that Singh should be sacked from the ministry and put in jail for his controversial and objectionable comment.

She also demanded that Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar should be removed from his post as he is unable to protect Dalits in the state.

Mayawati alleged the Dalits and Muslims are not safe in the country under the BJP rule. Mayawati said Dalits living with self-respect are being targetted.

“Dalit family which had left the village was brought back into the village after the formation of new government and was provided the security. Burning of the children even after the police deployment is serious,” she said.

Mayawati said suspension of policemen is not enough and they should be put in jail after registration of a case against them.

She said Faridabad incident is “shameful” and shows that the BJP is not concerned about Dalits.

Mayawati also said the visit of Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi to Faridabad was a “drama.”

“Mohan Bhagwat’s praise of Ambedkar and Gautam Buddha is futile if he is not following their footsteps as his recent remark suggesting review of reservation shows”, she added.

      Ha! Mayawati is still alive ? When a crucial election is taking place in Bihar which is an opportunity for all the Dalits and other suffering people, she was seen nowhere or heard anything from her. She behaved as if she had given a pledge in writing to the Modi Govt. that she will not interfere in Bihar election - come what may. Her silence was bought by Modi for money or is there any threat from the government using CBI against her ? Could be anything. But the pledge does not include Haryana for sure. She opened her mouth now. So, Haryana is out of the deal. Dalits must teach their leaders a lesson first and then take the hands of all other people who are suffering from the atrocities of Modi Govt. and Sangh Parivar. Today, the Dalit communities have leaders who compromise for wealth and power, which is not of any use to the people who are actually suffering. Look at Paswan, Manchi, Mayawati etc. These leaders are worried only about their political power and money. Dalits will get justice only through a new leadership committed to forge an alliance with OBCs, Minorities etc.

          Mayawati has touched the Mahatma’s Harijan yet again. Why can’t we leave people alone and ign them no labels? There are very poor people, and living generation after generation in filth through the perennial scope of their abject poverty they just don’t know how to get out of it. Those who move to urban India either change or continue to perpetuate old habits. Those who change usually appear clean and healthy in public place without a tag on their foreheads. They work in offices, business houses, restaurants or where ever they find an honest work. Their women folks clean and wash for a living. And, those who cling to old habits are forced to do tasks others would not do. They create mini Dharavis in towns and cities across the country and ultimately fall in the whirlpool of political patronage they can never escape. Other than that there are no Dalits in the twenty-first Century India--just people abandoned by both society and government to live in abject poverty. PM Narendra Modi is trying to change all that to add dignity to Indian citizenship.
