Don’t politicise Dalit issue: Rajnath Singh
New Delhi, Aug 11:
Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday urged against politicising the issue of atrocities on Dalits and said society must take it as a challenge to bring an end to such incidents.
“There should be no politics over this issue. We should take it as a challenge to end this injustice,” Rajnath Singh told Lok Sabha in a reply to the day-long debate on the issue of atrocities on Dalits.
“People from various castes and communities in India live together. Our ancestors believed in Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (World is one family),” he said.
The debate was held following outrage over incidents of flogging of Dalits, including in Una in Gujarat, by cow vigilantes. (IANS)
