Mayawati, Rahul slam MP govt after Dalit couple gets beaten

Jul 16, 2020 13:20 IST

Days after a Dalit family was beaten up by cops in Madhya Pradesh's Guna district, BSP chief Mayawati hit out at the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government in the state, asking for strict action against those responsible. In a series of tweets, the former UP chief minister said, to force a couple to attempt suicide by destroying the crops in the name of encroachment by the Guna Police is highly condemnable. She added that on one hand, BJP and their government are going GaGa over rehabilitation of Dalits, while on the other hand, incidents of their desolation are as common as they used to be under the rule of the Congress Party, so what is the difference between the two governments? Sharing a video of the incident, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said, "Our fight is against this thought process and injustice." Taking cognizance of the matter, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has ordered immediate removal of Collector and SP of Guna and directed a high-level inquiry into the incident.
