Patna, May 7: The BJP wants “deaf and dumb” dalits, alleged Udit Raj, who recently quit the saffron party after he was denied a ticket to contest the Lok Sabha polls. Terming Narendra Modi government as “anti-dalit” and “anti-backward class”, Raj said the BJP wants dalits who are “deaf and dumb” but it does not want a dalit leader who can raise his voice.

Raj, who had joined the Congress after quitting the BJP, told reporters at the Congress party office here that “If dalits want to lead a respectful and dignified life, then they should vote for Congress, RJD and allies.
“If any dalit votes for BJP, then he/she will be jeopardizing lives of their future generations,” he alleged. Raj is the sitting MP from north west Delhi constituency. He claimed that Ram Nath Kovind was nominated by the BJP to the President’s post as he did not raise his voice in the party but he (Udit) spoke against the government even in Parliament. He also alleged that Nitish Kumar government in Bihar is as much “anti-dalit” as the Modi government at the Centre.
