Prasad’s ‘pacifying’ comments come amid protests by massive protests by Dalit organizations in multiple locations of the country over the alleged "dilution" of SCs/STs (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
He further said, the ‘Dalits are happy with the Modi government since they know it is working in their interest’.
“We wish to emphatically state the provision of reservation of SC/ST is firm and will remain firm. Modi government has no idea of tampering it,” he asserted.
The minister charged at the Congress party for leading a campaign against the government in the most vicious manner. “The Congress always opposed to political narratives of Ambedkar and that’s the reason why he was given a Bharat Ratna in 1989, 34 years after his death.”
