Dalit ire at RSS 'untouchables'


Piyush SrivastavaThe hoarding with Ambedkar’s picture in MeerutLucknow: Dalits have objected to the identification of some saints as "untouchables" in hoardings for an RSS programme to be organised in Meerut from February 25. The RSS defended the writing by claiming it was a quote by Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, Dalit icon and the Father of the Constitution. Kailash Chandol, a Dalit leader in Meerut, said: "The Sangh does not have any plans for the development of Dalits. Now, they have dubbed our saints untouchables in their hoardings. Ajay Mittal, the zonal publicity head of the RSS, told reporters in Meerut that the writing on the hoarding was "only a quote by Ambedkar".
