The Big Debate: Self-Goals by BJP Leaders Hurts PM's Dalit Outreach

May 04, 2018 08:34 PM IST India India

PM Narendra Modi wanted BJP leaders to reach out to Dalits, but they construed it as some mandatory exercise. Only that can explain the string of gaffes in the last couple of days. First, a BJP leader compared Yogi Adityanath eating with Dalit to Lord Ram eating with Shabri, another brought his own 5-star buffet to a Dalit's house. On Friday, education minister of UP says she loves going to the house of Dalits despite the mosquito bites.
