SC decision has exposed Dalit plight: Maya
Lucknow, October 2
BSP president Mayawati on Wednesday said the Supreme Court’s decision on the SC/ST Act have brought to the fore “bitter life realities” and struggles of Dalit society and exposed the “Dalit love” of the ruling BJP and Congress.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday had recalled its direction in the March 20, 2018, verdict which had virtually diluted provisions of arrest under the SC/ST Act.
In a tweet, Mayawati said: “The Supreme Court, while restoring the provisions of the SC/ST Act 1989 in its judgement, has verified facts regarding the bitter life realities and struggles of Dalit society, they specially expose the Dalit love of the ruling BJP and Congress. It is necessary that the country and society remain aware (sic).”
In another tweet, she spoke about Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand faring badly on NITI Ayog’s ranking in terms of school education. “Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand are ranked lowest in the country in terms of school education ranking of NITI Ayog. Will the parties which have ruled the country and the state for the longest time, especially the Congress and BJP, be able to give an answer to the public on Gandhi Jayanti as to why there is such a shameful crisis,” she asked.
