He further wrote, “Even after 75 years of independence, a 9-year-old Dalit child had to be a victim of casteism in Jalore. We do not even have the freedom to touch the water pot! Then why are you beating the false slogan of freedom?”
देश आजादी का अमृत महोत्सव मना रहा है। वही दूसरी तरफ पानी के मटके को छूने पर इतना पीटा गया कि जान ही चली गयी।
आजादी के 75 साल बाद भी 9 साल के दलित बच्चे को जालोर मे जातिवाद का शिकार होना पड़ा। हमे पानी के मटके को छूने की भी आजादी नही! फिर क्यों आजादी का झूठा ढिंढोरा पीट रहे है? pic.twitter.com/OeOnVQjSAV
