Dalit death: After Raj MLA, 12 Congress councillors quit | India News

JAIPUR/KOTA: Outrage over the death of a nine-year-old Dalit boy after being beaten by a teacher in Rajasthan’s Jalore for allegedly touching a water jug ​​12 Conference councilors in Baran will give up mass on Tuesday, a day after the congressional MLA from the community set the tone by “listening to the voice of my conscience”.
In the midst of a gathering storm, the National Commission on Scheduled Actors issued a notice to Ashok Gehlot government, is seeking a status report on the circumstances of boy Dalit’s death. The committee also sent a fact-finding team to Rajasthan.
MLA Pana Chand Meghwal, who represents the Baran-Ataru constituency, quit on Monday saying he was “grieved” by the news of the child’s death in Ahmedabad hospital last weekend. “If we do not protect the rights of the community and ensure justice, we have no right to remain in office,” he wrote to the CM and panel speaker.
Yogendra Mehta, a councilor for Baran’s 29th ward, said he and 11 colleagues had quit to send a zero-tolerance message over allegations of class discrimination.
Former deputy CM Sachin Pilot said the state government has a responsibility to take strict action against the guilty and ensure such incidents do not happen again. Gehlot thinks the ongoing “BJP politics” over the boy’s death has gone too far. “In Jalore, a seer from the SC community died by suicide due to alleged harassment by a BJP MLA. Congress did not resort to politics over that death. For this incident (involving the boy Dalit), the authorities immediately arrested the teacher.”
MLA Meghwal said it was a shame that “atrocities against the oppressed and persecuted” have not lingered in the state even after 75 years of Independence. “The pain of the atrocities my community is facing today cannot be expressed in words,” he wrote.
