Over 50 Dalit families to hold protest in Delhi

Accusing the Bhupinder Singh Hooda Government in Haryana of failing to provide adequate compensation to the affected families in last year’s Gohana incident, over 50 Dalit families will stage a protest demonstration in New Delhi today.

“Members of over 50 families will stage a protest at Jantar Mantar on August 31 to mark the first anniversary of the gruesome Gohana incident in which houses of Dalits were set ablaze by members of another community,” Adi Dharam Samaj chief Darshan Rattan Ravan - spearheading the protest - said.

He alleged that the Hooda government had announced an interim relief of Rs one lakh for each family whose house had been burnt, but still ten families had not received any compensation.

In the Gohana incident, over 50 houses of Dalits were burnt by upper caste people in Sonipat district of Haryana last year.
