“Our party wants that rather than expressing sympathy with Dalits, the PM should focus on acting against those who commit atrocities against them,” the BSP chief said.

She also demanded that Modi should speak on the issue in Parliament. “If he can speak on it outside, he can also say it in the House,” she said.
