Addressing the gathering, Prakash Ambedkar alleged that the Hindutva communal forces were attacking SCs in the name of protests against cow slaughtering in Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat. But the BJP governments in both the States failed to take action against the communal forces. He said innocent Dalits were killed in the attacks.
“It is a reflection of the situation prevailing in the country in the Modi regime,” he said. Prakash Ambedkar also found fault with the policies related to external affairs being followed by Narendra Modi. He said they were leading to straining relations with some neighbouring countries.
Prakash Ambedkar called upon people to fight against caste discrimination which is still being practiced by the upper caste people in many villages throughout the country.
He also criticised the State government for its failure to appoint representative of Dalits as EO or Chairman of a temple administration. He demanded that an IAS officer representing SCs should be immediately appointed as EO of the TTD.
