Mayawati to visit Saharanpur on Tuesday

Share

The protests were staged four days after one Thakur man was killed and 25 Dalit homes set ablaze after Dalits in Shabbirpur village objected to loud music being played by Thakurs in a procession to attend a function in honour of Rajput ruler Maharana Pratap.

"Mayawati would be visiting Shabbirpur village in Baragaon police station area of Saharanpur where the clash between dalit and thakurs took place earlier this month", confirmed an official release of the Party on Monday.

Expressing concern over the clash between Thakurs and Dalits in Saharanpur, Mayawati on Saturday accused the Yogi Adityanath government of "saffron appeasement".

While talking to The Hindu many said the caste clashes in Saharanpur and the "subsequent success of its Jantar Mantar protest has catapulted the Dalit group to the national stage and led to discussion about its possible role in Dalit politics and activism".

The reality of Yogi Adityanath's governance in the state of Uttar Pradesh seems to have broken the cracks and exposed itself to the world.

Aware that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has made an inroad into her Dalit vote bank, Mayawati plans to regain the lost ground by sending a message to the Dalits that the BSP will continue to fight for their rights.

The Bheem Army is a group of educated youths at the grass roots from the region who differ from the traditional narrative of Dalit rights centred around job and educational reservation only. As many as 16 people from both sides were injured in the incident. Enraged over the killing, an angry mob torched several houses of Dalits in the village and also set afire several police and other vehicles.

It all started when the Thakur men wanted to celebrate the birthday of Maharana Pratap with a musical procession which was opposed by the Dalits as they opposed it because of lack of permission from the authorities.

This was the second clash in Saharanpur in a fortnight involving Dalits.
