New Delhi, Oct 6 The BJP on Tuesday criticised the atrocities on Dalits "anywhere in India, regardless of whoever is in power".
Answering to a question put forward by a reporter, the party's newly appointed General secretary Dushyant Gautam also slammed the opposition for their selective outrage based on "vote banks".
"If Dalits, poor, workers or a daughter is raped or murdered in the country, it's a pathetic crime, regardless of whoever is in power," said Gautam.
He added that there have been four "incidents" after the horrific killing and alleged gang-rape of a Dalit girl in Hathras in Kerala, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
Gautam said he was "hurt" at the "pick and choose" policy over the outrage based on the party in power. "When people go there thinking whether they will get the vote of one community, it is to create a divide in the country and to weave a conspiracy," Gautam alleged.
He also hit out at RJD leader Tejaswi Yadav for an alleged conversation in hushed voice caught by the microphone where Yadav could be heard talking about keeping a moment's silence seemingly aimed at garnering Dalit votes.
Gautam claimed that the NDA will do well in Bihar, saying 85 per cent Ind, including opposition leaders, favoured Narendra Modi.
He also termed the recent killing of a BJP worker in West Bengal as "murder of democracy".
BJP national President J.P. Nadda held a meeting with the new general secretaries of the party on Monday and with the office-bearers on Tuesday.
Gautam said Nadda asked all the office-bearers to take the message of the benefits of the farm Bills to the public across India.
