AAP to release 'Dalit Manifestos' in Punjab, Gujarat, Goa

New Delhi: At a time assaults on Dalits have turned into a political hot potato, the Aam Aadmi Party has decided to launch 'Dalit Manifestos' in poll-bound Punjab, Goa and Gujarat to "expose the anti-Dalit and Manuwadi" side of BJP. Party sources said that the manifestos, which would be specifically targeted at the Dalit community, will deliberate extensively on the "systemic oppression" against them in the states and the highlight the lack of an agenda to include them in the societal development. AAP will also bring out a 'Youth Manifesto' in Goa like the one in Punjab. "Since the Centre is not interested in taking any action against the perpetrators of crime against Dalits, then what options are left? In Gujarat, it is not the first time that Dalits were beaten up so badly. But how many people know that this has been going on?" a senior party functionary asked.
