Another BJP Dalit MP writes to PM Modi, says ‘Being a Dalit my capabilities have not been put to use’
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Uttar Pradesh’s Nagina, Yashwant Singh, wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused the Central government of ignoring the Dalits of the country.
In his letter, Singh claimed that he became an MP because of his reservation. He said that “When I was elected, I had personally requested you to pass the bill for reservation in the promotions. Different organisations of society come to us with these kind of requests regularly. But even after four years, no work has been done by your government for the direct benefit of nearly 300 million Dalits in this country. Such as completing the backlog, passing the reservation bill, giving reservation in private jobs, etc.”
