Arvind Kejriwal the Chief Minister of Delhi was the latest visitor to the village in Gujarat that has drawn a massive political attention over the flogging and then shaming of four Dalit men for skinning a dead cow on July 11.
According to Kejriwal, the BJP government in Gujarat is oppressing Dalits and are anti-Dalit, and these people, who are oppressed will teach BJP a lesson.
A video footage which provoked a national outrage in the country, as the men, who were workers, were stripped and then tied to an SUV, also flogged with iron rods and then paraded by “Gau Rakshaks” or the self-proclaimed cow protectors. The video was surfaced as a warning.
After Rahul Gandhi the Congress vice president’s visit yesterday, it was Mr Kejriwal’s turn today.
“We demand action against these Dalit atrocities,” said the Delhi Chief Minister, who had been visiting Gujarat with a growing frequency as his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) preps for the polls in the state next year.
Mr Kejriwal also met the activists who had attempted suicide over the past week as a protest by Dalit groups engulfed Gujarat.
