[ZESTCaste] Paswan marches to protest 'atrocities' against dalits

Paswan marches to protest 'atrocities' against dalits

Banthal (Gujarat), Apr 15 (PTI) Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram
Vilas Paswan today undertook a march here, demanding "justice" for
dalits who reportedly left this village after alleged harassment by
upper caste people.

The party said hundreds of Dalits participated in the rally and
alleged that more a thousand people of the community had left the
village in last one year due to atrocities against them.

"The population of this village is around 3,500 and nearly 50 per cent
of them are from Dalit communities. The Dalits were subjected to a
number of atrocities as they were denied access to water from tanks
and not allowed to take ration from shops," Paswan said.

He alleged their efforts to get support of the police proved futile
and they had to leave the village.
