Is there no value for dalit MLA in your party?: BJP questions DKShi

Bengaluru: The State BJP has questioned KPCC president DK Shivakumar saying ‘whether a dalit legislator of the State is not worthy of any value from your party.’

After the arrest of former city mayor Sampath Raj in connection with the August 11 violence in the city, MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy asked Shivakumar, through news media, “will you still not stand in my support?”

Reacting to this the State’s BJP unit tweeted: “What is this Congress? Does a dalit legislator deserve no value in your party?”

The BJP, which tweeted under the hashtag #CongressAgainstDalits, alleged that Congress has been taking an anti-dalit stance since the time of the constitution’s architect Ambedkar. Siddaramaiah advanced that stance in the State. The defeat of senior dalit leaders Mallikarjun Kharge and Dr G Parameshwar was also because of its anti-Dalit policies.

MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy in his statement to news media had also stated that Siddaramaiah and Zameer Ahmed Khan have extended their support to him. He appealed to DK Shivakumar to extend his support to him.
