MANGALORE: Several Dalit leaders have made a serious allegation that
the Bhajrangdal was

trying to create a rift between the Dalits and the majority community.

This complaint was heard at the SC ST grievance redressal meeting held
at the Police

Commissioner's office in Mangalore on November 27, Sunday.

"Ever since a certain Santosh of Shaktinagar was attacked on November
26, the Bharjangdal has

targeted about 372 Dalits of the vicinity. This has been backed by a
person close to the district

in-charge minister,"a Dalit leader alleged.

Meanwhile, the Dalit Rights Action Committee referring to an incident
that took place recently

when about 25 goondas patronized by former mayor Rajani Dugganna had
raided the residence

of one Sajani and even attacked her, alleged that the accused have not
yet been arrested despite a

complaint lodged on September 22."

Presently, the family is in fear and is under threat. Power as well as
water connection to the

house has also been snapped," it was alleged. Finally DCP Muttayya
assured to consider the


Dalit leader SP Anand complained that the municipal workers were
working without any

security and that the practice of making labourers manually clean
septic tanks and manholes

was still in vogue. He also demanded regularization of the services of
municipal worers and also

health facilities to them.
