Congress in Lok Sabha demands statement from Narendra Modi
“RSS is behind the Bhima-Koregaon violence,” said Mallikarjun Kharge in Lok Sabha. An uproar erupted in the House as soon as Kharge made this statement.
“Whether it is in Gujarat, Una, Rajasthan, there is nothing but injustice wherever BJP is in power,” Kharge said. “A Supreme Court judge should be appointed and he should inquire this. The prime minister should come to the House and make a statement. When such incidents are happening, he does nothing,” he added.
Bhima-Koregaon issue raised in Lok Sabha
“There are some fascist forces who want to oppress Dalits. The injustices against Dalits in rural and urban areas are highly unfair,” said Congress’ Mallikarjun Kharge in the Lok Sabha.
“Whenever Dalits try to live respectfully, there are some people who try to harm them and interrupt such efforts. This is what happened in Bhima-Koregaon,” Kharge further said.
“Why did such an incident happen after years of peace at such an event? Recruitment of Dalits in the army was forbidden for thousands of years because they couldn’t carry weapons,” Kharge further said.
