Partition opinion about the law in BJP
Union minister and senior BJP leader Kalraj Mishra, while keeping personal opinion on the law yesterday, said that the SC-ST Act is being misused on land. This creates a sense of inequality within the people. Officials are also afraid that if the lawsuit is not registered then action will be taken. People are being arrested in fake lawsuits. He said, “There is no issue of party and opposition, I am in favor of preventing misuse of the law. I, all the leaders of the party should take their feedback here, all the parties should consider the solution.”
Why is organisms happening?
Let me tell you that the Supreme Court had made a major change in the SC / ST Act on March 20 that it will be mandatory for the approval of the concerned Senior Superintendent of Police to arrest the nominated accused under it. Apart from this, a police sub-inspector can do a preliminary inquiry to know whether the matter falls under this Act or not.
Opposition parties had accused the Modi government after the Supreme Court’s decision that the government did not keep the arguments in the court properly, due to which the law was weak, now the oppression against the Dalits will increase. The Dalits had called off India on 2 April in protest against the Supreme Court’s decision, there was a lot of violence during this period.
BJP MPs from Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes also raised their voices in protest and told their own government that the government should bring the ordinance back to the law. After which Modi Government passed the amendment bill passed from the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha to implement the SC / ST Act. Now the upper class has started to raise voice against it.
