BJP leader critical of V K Singh's remark on dalits

 Former minister Govind Karjol of the BJP has stated that all those who make derogatory remarks against dalits, including Union Minister of State for External Affairs V K Singh, should not continue in politics.

He told media persons here on Wednesday that those who do not consider Dalits as human beings have no moral standing to be in politics, and such remarks cannot be tolerated at all.
“Hope some action would be initiated against V K Singh after Bihar polls for his derogatory statement,” Karjol added.

He also charged that the Congress party has no moral right to speak about Dalits, as it toppled the government when Babu Jagjivanram was about to become the prime minister, it fielded a candidate against Dr B R Ambedkar to defeat him in elections, and it did not give Bharat Ratna to Dr Ambedkar.

Return of awards

Meanwhile, State BJP president Pralhad Joshi said that litterateurs were returning only such awards which carry a small purse and not the ones with a huge cash reward.

Speaking after inaugurating Antyodaya Samavesha of the BJP here on Wednesday, Joshi sought to know the reason for the silence of ‘so-called’ litterateurs on the death of Prashanth Pujary who was killed for raising his voice against illegal cattle slaughter.

“Without having any lead in the probe, how can one say that rightists murdered Dr Kalburgi? Moreover, the Hindu community never supports terrorist activities,” Joshi said.
