BJP will curb atrocities against Maharashtra Dalits : Devendra Fadnavis Maharashtra has been the land of many great dalit leaders like Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, Savitribai Phule, Dr BR Ambedkar, Shahu Maharaj etc, who launched diverse Dalit welfare programs in state and strived for their emancipation from the clutches of exploiters. However, sadly, in that very state under the Cong-NCP govt maximum number of Dalit atrocities are being reported.  On 22 Nov 2013, RPI (A) president Ramdas Athawale had apprised Home Minister RR Patil of rising Dalit atrocities and demanded from him setting up fast track courts to tackle such cases and strictly implement the Atrocity Act, 1989.  Nitin Raut, Congress leader and Minister for employment guarantee,

made his own govt red-faced on 6 May 2014, while he asserted that atrocities against Dalits had increased during the last 3 years of Congress-NCP rule. He added that Pune, Parbhani and Ahmednagar districts had witnessed alarming rise in such cases and condemned the murder of Dalit youths in parts of Western Maharashtra, Marathwada and Vidarbha.  National Campaign for Dalit Human Rights (NCDHR) had asked Maharashtra govt on 13 May 2014 that violence against Dalits are rising in state at an alarming rate and govt has been completely unsuccessful in providing them protection.  In response to a question, RR Patil had to declare in black and white on 7 Jun 2014, that state police had registered total 2,068 cases of atrocities in 2013, out of which 1,634 cases were against SC, 418 cases against ST and 16 cases under violation of civil rights.  On 24 August 2014, State BJP president Devendra Fadnavis made a startling revelation while he expressed the fact that in all such atrocity cases, accused were mostly related to ruling Cong-NCP parties. He further added that these parties have come in power piggybacking the legacies of Dalit leaders like Mahatma Phule, Dr B.R. Ambedkar and Shahu Maharaj. But, ironically maximum numbers of Dalit atrocities were reported under this govt. He also caught attention towards the large scale corruption taking place in the schemes launched for SC/ST, as their benefits did not reach the expected people. Talking about Lok Sabha elections in which BJP won all six reserved-for- SC/ST categories in Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis clarified that the win had apparently indicated that SC & ST voters had stopped supporting Congress-NCP and had instead selected BJP. According to Fadnavis, even after gaining vote from dalit voters since a long time, Congress considered them just a vote bank and hence they remained

backward. But, now as per NaMo mantra “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas” BJP is geared up to work for the development of all. He also added that ruling parties are spreading propaganda against BJP for being anti -Dalit, but this propaganda will not fool the younger generation of Maharashtra..
