Singh, who is BJP MP from Nagina in western UP, has basically raised the issue of reservation for Dalits in private sector and also in promotions. "But today, we the Dalit MP's of BJP have to face our constituents and are unable to reply to their questions". Sometimes, it also takes a violent turn. "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Shri Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Shri Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader".
"The meeting with the Prime Minister only underscored that at the heart of our friendship with India are the values that we share: a commitment to freedom, democracy, and the rule of law", the Congressman said.
"In four years, the government has done nothing for the 30 crore Dalits of the country", he further said.
"I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues in Congress to ensure that the United States and India are able to continue their partnership on peace and security in an uncertain world", Krishnamoorthi is quoted saying in a press release.
The Prime Minister reiterated that the party aims to ensure that the person sitting on the bottom of the pyramid is connected to BJP.
Modi affirmed that there are two contrasting moods in the two different alliances in India.
Reshma from Mumbai wanted to know about the usage of technology, to which the Prime Minister said, "Life without technology is a life incomplete and we must keep using technology for a better future". Calling it an honor to meet Modi to discuss the further strengthening of the "special relationship", Krishnamoorthi described India as the "linchpin of security" in the Indo-Pacific region, which the Trump administration has made one of its foreign policy priorities. The missive follows a letter another Dalit MP had written on Friday in which he had alleged that Dalits were being targeted by police, especially in Uttar Pradesh.
Modi used digital application - NarendraModi App - for the interaction, during which he appealed the party workers to refrain from using offensive language. Addressing media in Lucknow on the occasion of BJP's sthapna diwas, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stressed that the government is working hard to make sure that benefits of centre's schemes reach the last man standing in the queue. He cited the example of the good work being done in the New Delhi Parliamentary seat, where awareness on waste to health and public health is being spread.
