New Delhi: In accordance to Bharatiya Janata Party leaders dining at Dalit people’s home since last few days, BJP’s Dalit MP from Baharaich Savitri Devi Phule who took a stand against her own party claiming reservation benefits for SC/ST, said that BJP still do not treat Dalits as humans as in the name of dining at Dalits home they are getting their meals prepared by people from upper caste.

While talking to the media, Phule went on to say: “The leaders are getting their meals prepared by people from upper caste. They eat in new plates and drink mineral water. What are they trying to prove? These leaders should eat the food prepared and served by Dalits in their plates.”

She further went on to say: “Unke(Dalits) saath khana kha kar kya ehsaan kar rahe hain? Nahin. Daliton ko insaan abhi bhi nahi samajhte hain ye log (Are they doing any favour to Dalits by dining with them? No. They still don’t treat Dalits as humans).”

“Social emancipation will come only when Dalits are provided education and jobs. Not by dining with them, taking a photograph and posting it on social media,” she said.

The BJP MP’s attack on leaders of her own party comes two days after cabinet minister Suresh Rana found himself in the midst of a controversy by eating food ordered from outside at a Dalit family’s home in Aligarh.
