Modi Govt deprived me of ministership for raising Dalit voice: BJP MP Udit Raj

Nagpur: Another ‘sulking’ BJP MP has raised his voice and targeted the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The party’s Dalit MP Dr Udit Raj has alleged that he was not made minister only because he raised voice against atrocities against the Dalit community members in the 4-year rule of Modi Government.

Dr Udit Raj aired his grievance while addressing 2-day regional conference of scheduled caste and tribes organised by Akhil Bharatiya Parisangh at Jawahar Students’ Hostel in city. He is also National President of Akhil Bharatiya Parisangh of SCs and STs. The BJP MP presided over the open conference being held on topic “Current challenges, Constitution and remedies.” President of National OBC Mahasangh Dr Babanrao Taiwade and All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s Abdul Wahab Parekh were chief guests.

Dr Udit Raj further said, “There is difference between social service and politics. One should have strength to fight with his own party if social issues warrant it. If tomorrow I am not able to become an MP and an illiterate becomes MP, then people will visit him. Hence it is need of the hour to change this role of society and its thinking,” he said.

“If SC, ST, OBC and Muslim communities come together, it will be a big force and the politicians would also run after it. The government had to bow down before the unity of Jats, Patels, Marathas and farmers. Now, it is time for unity among SCs, STs, OBCs and Muslims for their rights,” the BJP MP said.

Dr Taiwade, in his speech, said, “Forces against Constitution will have to crushed. For this, Dalits, OBCs and Muslims will have to come together. The slogan ‘Jai OBC, Jai Bhim’ needs to be reached everywhere,” he said.

All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s Abdul Wahab Parekh said, “Condition of Muslims in this secular country is miserable. Basic rights are being violated. Lives of animals are being given importance rather than lives of humans. Unholy attitude is behind this aspect. Atmosphere in the country is akin to Hitler era. Provisions of thousands of crores are made for various welfare schemes for minority communities. But a thorough probe must be conducted as to where the money goes,” he said.
