[ZESTCaste] Dalits write to Hooda

Dalits write to Hooda

Deepender Deswal, TNN, Jun 23, 2010, 02.31am IST

ROHTAK: At Bopara, around five or six youths assaulted Bhoop Singh
with lathis on Tuesday. The victim, who is a Dalit and a relative of
the newly-elected sarpanch, also named Bhoop Singh, was beaten up
following a verbal duel on the ongoing controversy over the recently
conducted panchayat elections. The sarpanch had triggered the casteist
row by participating in the polls despite a call for boycott on the
ground that all major panchayat and zila parishad posts had been
reserved for Scheduled Castes.

Claiming that certain elements from both the communities were trying
to vitiate the atmosphere by engaging in casteist row, former zila
parishad chairman Miterpal Singh told TOI, "The issue (caste conflict)
is being raised without any reason as there has never been any rift
between communities in our village. If the entire village is unanimous
on a issue and a certain person prefers to disagree, then others, too,
have a right to disagree or break ties with him."

Meanwhile, the Dalits have written to chief minister Bhupinder Singh
Hooda, asking him to ensure their security.
