Discrimination with Dalits in CM's native village!

The reports that Dalits are denied entry in temples in the ancestral village of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, are shocking and rather than going into denial mode, the party should take corrective measures.

The Dalit families in Jait village told media persons that they were not allowed to step into the temple. "We are told that Chamars can't get inside", said Vaijyanti, a Dalit woman who lives near Chouhan's ancestral house.

Congress has attacked the ruling party over the practice of untouchability. PCC chief Suresh Pachouri has visited the village. National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) Buta Singh has also made a tour of the place after the news hit media headlines.

He said that Dalits were made to enter the temple during his visit but it looked stage-managed at. BJP government appears on the backfoot but it should better concentrate on eradicating such social evils. Jait is located in Sehore, a district that borders Bhopal.
