YSRCP condemns attacks on Dalits

Condemning the brutal attack on Dalits by miscreants in the garb of “Gau Rakshana Samithi”, YSR Congress has condemned the government inaction on the issue.

“TDP and BJP workers in the name of Go Rakshana samithi have indiscriminately beaten up Dalits for peeling the skin of dead cows and the state has failed to take action till now,” party MLA Uppuleti Kalpana told reporters here on Wednesday.

Dalits have been skinning dead animals and it has been their profession since long and the attacks on SCs and STs are on the rise, she said. Ever since TDP and BJP came to power in the state and centre respectively, the attacks on Dalits and minorities have been on the rise country wide and in Andhra Pradesh as well, she said. (INN)
