No jobs, no vote: Rajasthan town warns Narendra Modi ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha polls

PM Modi to interact with workers on BJP's 38th foundation day

He further urged the BJP workers to refrain from saying or doing anything that lowers India's political discourse.

He said in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that Dalit MPs like him in the ruling party are victims of atrocities against scheduled castes and it has become hard for them to answer to the community.

Singh, a qualified physician from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi, said in the letter: "Being a Dalit my capabilities have not been put to use".

Indian American lawmaker Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, who met India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi on April 6, said that he would work with his counterparts to strengthen the bilateral relationship between the two countries.

In the wake of Dalit anger seen across the nation on Monday, three BJP MPs from Scheduled Caste community have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to mark their dissent.

On March 16, in a significant move, the Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP pulled itself out of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). He said the people of Andhra Pradesh believed that the Naidu-Modi combo will solve the problems of the State.

He has also given details of the various schemes of the Modi government which have benefited the poorest of the poor in the country, "the Rs.500,000 insurance for 50 crore poor families, electricity connection to 10 crore homes, and unprecedented higher remuneration for agriculture produce across the country'". On Friday, MP Ashok Dohre had written to the PM, claiming that following the April 2 violence in the state during the agitation against the "dilution" of the SC/ST Act, Dalits were being targeted. Singh alleged that courts were chipping away at the rights of Dalits because the community has no representation in the judiciary.

According to party leaders, the views expressed by the Dalit MPs could mean something else.

He also asked the PM to take steps towards reservation in the private sector - a demand earlier raised by Union Minister and LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan.
