PM's silence encouraging atrocities against Dalits: Pilot

Jaipur: Questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi's silence on the issue of atrocities against Dalits, PCC President Sachin Pilot today alleged such incidents have increased since BJP came to power at the Centre.

"After BJP came to power, atrocities against Dalits in the state and other parts of the country have increased. Such incidents in Gujarat and Rajasthan have exposed the double standards of BJP," Pilot said in a statement.

"Dalits are feeling insecure in the BJP rule. Despite several incidents, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP leadership are quiet on the issue. The Prime Minister's silence is encouraging such incidents," he alleged.
