Anil Yadav, organization secretary, UP Congress sat on dharna on Monday with hundreds of Dalits and Congress workers in the village after meeting the victims.
Speaking to NH over the phone, Yadav who is also a native of Azamgarh district, said if the Yogi government does not act against the
culprits and compensate Dalits whose houses have been demolished by the police, the Congress will start an indefinite strike.
“Anti-Dalit mind set of the BJP government stands exposed. Unlike other political parties which claim to be a party of Dalits, Congress works on the ground,” said Yadav, adding, “BJP government must order a judicial probe into the matter.”
“UP Congress fought for Dalits in the past. It will fight for Dalits in the future. Whether it was Hathras or Saharanpur incidents…Congress was the first to reach out to them and to speak up for them,” said Yadav.
