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

Concluding his letter, Dr. Singh requests PM Modi to bring in the bill for reservation in promotions, bring in backlog job vacancies and reservations in private sector and to get the court decision on SC/St Act reversed. It is not because we made a mistake. He wrote that Dalits were being pulled out of their homes and beaten. The BJP MP also said he was threatened with a pistol by an opponent who used abusive, casteist language against him, but the police did not register a case.

"Being a Dalit, my capabilities have not been put to use, I only became an MP because of reservation", the letter read, adding, "In 4 years the government has done nothing for the 30 crore Dalits of the country".

The first-time parliamentarian is the fourth scheduled caste MP from India's most populous state to red-flag the government on Dalits in less than a week - after Savitri Bai Phule, Chhotelal and Ashok Dohre, representing Bahraich, Roberstganj and Etawah constituencies respectively. SCs constitute over 22% of the state's population.

Singh appealed Modi to consider the lack of Dalit representation in the judiciary, which leads to "judicial orders which adversely impact the community". BJP city president P. Yerikalappa, BJYM State vice-president Chalama Reddy, State committee member Jaya Srinivas, district general secretary P. Sambasiva Reddy, treasurer M. Satish, Mahila Morcha, district president S. Bhavani Reddy, State Council member G. Saraswathamma, district secretary Pushpavathamma and others were present.

RBI's monetary review today, unlikely to cut interest rates
Besides, RBI has to take into consideration the rise in crude oil prices which temporarily touched Dollars 70 per barrel. The reverse repo, rate at which it borrows from banks and absorbs excess liquidity, will remain at 5.75 per cent.

Recently, violence erupted during a nationwide bandh by Dalits to protest the softening of provisions of the SC/ST Act.

According to party leaders, the views expressed by the Dalit MPs could mean something else. "BJP particularly sensitive to aspirations of poor and marginalized", said the PM.

In the letter, Kharwar complained about a local party functionary helping the rival Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in a block-level election and undermining his efforts.

The two parties have hinted that they might forge an alliance in 2019, considered a worrying prospect for Dalit MPs of the BJP.
