The Bharat Bandh of April 2, 2018 to protest the Supreme Court verdict that makes it more difficult to apply the stringent SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act, saw large scale violence and left ten people dead. The SC order has only heightened the anxiety and insecurity that the Dalit community has been articulating for some time. Dalit leaders across the political spectrum including the ruling party, the BJP, have begun to speak out. On Off Centre, BJP MP Savitri Bai Phule from the reserved constituency of Bharaich in Uttar Pradesh, explains what’s at stake and why she has been mobilizing Dalits on the ground since December last year.
