Congress to hold dharna, nationwide fast against Narendra Modi government

The Congress leader also slammed the Prime Minister's advice to BJP MPs to stay at the houses of Dalits in villages, saying Modi should, instead, first call his Dalit MPs and other representatives of the Dalits to his house and provide them answers on rising atrocities against Dalits.

Dr Yashwant Singh, a Dalit MP from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), became the fourth in line to raise his voice against Prime Minister Narendra Modi accusing his government of not catering to the 30 crore Dalits in the country during the course of the four years that he has been in power.

The Parliament witnessed a complete washout of the second half of the Budget Session that ended on Friday.

He said despite massive protests and outcry on the streets over the dilution of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling on March 20, the Prime Minister has maintained silence.

The Congress blamed the BJP-led government for not letting Parliament function and termed as "gimmick" and "drama" the move by NDA MPs to forgo their salary for 23 days when Parliament did not function.

Senior party spokesperson Anand Sharma said Rahul Gandhi has announced a plan to hold a fast on April 9 at all district headquarters to help promote peace, brotherhood and harmony in the country.
