Act on Dalit atrocity cases: Forum

Addressing a press conference, general secretary of the vedike, Venugopal said harassment against Dalits have gone up after the BJP government came to power in state.

“People from upper castes have meted out atrocity on Dalits in Muttur in Periyapatna. While, a few miscreants desecrated the portrait of Dr Ambedkar by making a garland of slippers, people belonging to upper castes beat up Dalits for not obeying their orders in Kasuvinahalli in Nagamangala.

Whereas a youth who went to a saloon in Kirugavalu in Malavalli was assaulted with blade,” he said, adding that the government was blind to all these cases. The government should immediately act against the accused in these cases, he urged.
