“RSS trying to turn Dalits against reservation policy”

September 12, 2015 12:00 am | Updated 05:49 am IST - Paramakudi:

Tamil Nadu Untouchability Eradication Front (TNUEF) has criticised the Rahstriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for trying to turn a section of Dalits against the reservation policy.

Talking to reporters after paying homage to Dalit leader Immanuel Sekaran on the occasion of his 58th death anniversary here on Friday, TNUF State general secretary K. Samuel Raj said that the recent conference addressed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah in Madurai was part of the RSS’s ploy to make Dalits “prick their eyes with their own hands”.

“The conference was part of a larger conspiracy launched by the RSS to do away with reservation,” he alleged.
