Udit Raj, a Dalit MP from North-west Delhi, tweeted that Dalits are being targeted and tortured after Bharat Bandh. Many were quick to point out that all the places he had mentioned in the tweet were ruled by BJP. Bharat Bandh was pan-country protest call given by Dalit groups against the dilution of the SC/ST act by the Supreme Court. Raj, later clarifying his earlier statement, tweeted that his tweet was misconstrued and that BJP will convince Dalits to remain in the party. Four other Dalit ministers from BJP have expressed their unhappiness with the government in the past one week.
