With theall set to take up a discussion on the matter of atrocities on Dalits, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday rubbished assertions that it was behind the recent incidents and said it unequivocally condemns the attacks against the community.
leader Nalin Kohli said it is extremely unfortunate that these kinds of incidents are happening in this country.
“We condemn them completely, unequivocally. At the same time, while the concern is there that these incidents should stop, law and order has to immediately act against them, where ever the culprits are.,” Kohli added.
“To believe that this is a conspiracy and the BJP is behind it is equally condemnable,” he added.
