“Why is the police not taking action? It indicates that Govt is involved. State government in Gujarat is anti-Dalit,” said Kejriwal.

Kejriwal further said, “BJP government in Gujarat is trying to suppress Dalits in the state. Such incidents must stop. Strict action must be taken against the culprits.” “I met the victims. What wrong have they done? They were only taking off the skin of a dead cow. They have been doing this for years. It’s what their ancestors did. They have to do this for a living, they don’t own any land,” Kejriwal said.
