Modi with KCR Attack me, not Dalits

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday sent a strong message calling for the protection of Dalits and punishment for fake cow vigilantes, issues over which his party, the BJP, has been facing opposition fire. During his maiden visit to Telangana, he asked people to stop politics over Dalits, asking people to protect Dalits and other exploited sections. "If you have a problem, if you feel like attacking someone, attack me, not my Dalit brothers.

If you want to shoot anyone, shoot me, not my Dalit brothers," he declared in Hyderabad. Earlier, at Medak, he made some scathing comments about "fake cow protectors" saying they were "dividing the nation and should be isolated and punished". "Be wary of 'nakli' (fake) gau rakshaks, they have nothing to do with cow. Governments should crack down on them," PM Modi said at a function to lay water pipes in Medak's Gajwel.

This was the second time in two days the Prime Minister has called cow vigilantes to order. Yesterday, he delivered a blistering condemnation of cow protectors, saying they make him "so angry". Cow vigilantes have been blamed for some of the most outrageous incidents over the recent months, including the stripping and flogging of four Dalit men in Gujarat's Una. The incidents have provoked opposition allegations that the ruling BJP is encouraging, or ignoring, the atrocities on the underprivileged.
