BJP, RSS are practising poisonous politics: Rahul


Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday blamed the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh for “poisonous politics’’ for parading and beating two Dalit boys in Maharashtra for using “an upper caste well.” “The only fault of these Dalit children, was that they used a well meant for the ‘upper castes,’ to take a bath,” Mr. Gandhi said on Twitter and tagged a two-minute long video.

The video captures the merciless beating of two boys who are nude and are barely covering their private areas with leaves. On June 10, minor Dalit boys were stripped, beaten and paraded nude for allegedly using a well, reportedly owned by an upper caste man in Wakadi village.
“Humanity is clutching at the last straws to save its dignity. If we don’t raise our voices against this politics of hate and poison of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and BJP, history would not forgive us,” the Congress chief said. His comments on the issue come in the middle of a Maharashtra Congress team visiting the village to study the ground situation. Condemning the incident, Union Minister for Social Welfare Ramdas Athawale said he too will visit the village and meet the victims and their families over the weekened. Though the police have made arrests in the case, the incident has snowballed into a major political issue at a time when Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis is out of the country seeking investment from foreign players.
