Fourth Dalit BJP MP writes to PM Modi

He said that it is because of its work that the BJP has spread its footprint throughout the country.

Briefing reporters on the parliamentary party meeting, Union Minister Ananth Kumar quoted the Prime Minister as saying that while the BJP's strength has been rising, the Opposition, especially the Congress, has resorted to "divisive and negative" politics. Recalling the foundation of the BJP, Modi said: "BJP was born Mumbai in extremely tough circumstances. It is truly democratic and an only democratic political party can effectively serve a democratic nation", said the Prime Minister.

Speaking about the four years of the BJP-led NDA government, Prime Minister Modi opined, "Ours is a government fully dedicated to the poor and this is also seen in the working of the various state governments of the BJP". The reason is not that we have made any mistake.

Yashwant Singh further wrote that, "There is no representation of the Dalit society in the court, due to which the court is prone to give decisions against Dalits and remove our rights from time to time". That the parties have started making preliminary moves with an eye on the election was evident from the timely Delhi visits of Trinamool Congress leader and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her Andhra Pradesh counterpart and Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu, who made it a point to meet other Opposition leaders to explore the possibility of a federal front.
