Kejriwal wants cases against Gujarat Dalits withdrawn

New Delhi, Oct 25 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday asked the Gujarat government to withdraw all “false” cases against Dalits.

“The Gujarat government should withdraw all false cases against Dalits,” he tweeted.

Kejriwal’s statement came in response to a Dalit leader and AAP supporter Jignesh Mevani’s tweet, asking why many Dalits are still in jail when the Gujarat government has withdrawn “95 per cent” cases filed against the Patidar community during their agitation for reservation in government jobs.
