Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursdau said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is having an "anti-Dalit" mindset and asserted that his party will fight for an India where there is place for everybody.

"If Modi ji had space for Dalits in his heart then the policies for Dalits would have been different. When he was CM he wrote in his book 'Daliton ko safai karne se anand milta hai. This is his ideology," news agency ANI quoted Rahul Gandhi as saying.


Gandhi joined a protest over the dilution of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, at Jantar Mantar.

"The atrocities act was brought by the Congress and the party will protect it together with everybody," Gandhi said.

Dalits are being openly beaten and crushed in states where the BJP is in power, Gandhi said while addressing the gathering. 

"We don't want an India like this. We want an India in which there should be place for everybody, whether Dalits, poor, tribals or minorities... everybody should progress. We will fight for such an India," he said.

Attacking the prime minister, Gandhi said, "His thinking is anti-Dalit. All Dalits and people from the weaker sections know that the prime minister has no place for Dalits in his heart and mind and wants to crush Dalits. That is why we are standing against him."
