New Delhi : The Congress on Wednesday termed the NDA government at the Centre as "anti-Dalit".
"The NDA government is anti-Dalit. A BJP MLA from Maharashtra, Ravindra Chavan, has compared Dalits to pigs and the party has not taken any action against him. Earlier, Union Minister of State for External Affairs V.K. Singh had compared Dalits to dogs," Congress spokesperson P.L. Punia said while addressing a press conference here.
"Why do they always compare Dalits to animals," he asked insisting "such comments reflect highly of their anti-Dalit mentality".
