The amendment bill was approved by the Union Cabinet on Wednesday. Opponents criticized the Central Government for not taking any steps to maintain the original provisions of this Act. Also Dalit organizations have called for a bandh call on 9th August for demand for this law. The allegation of the Supreme Court’s decision was that this act was averted. The party in Naloi was also complaining that the central government still does not do the repairs in the law. Therefore, the Modi government has approved the decision to amend the Act two days back. This is the only question that will be presented at the convention.
Increase in Dalit oppression
Congress leader Mallikarjuna Kharge said in a zero hour that the verdict given by the Supreme Court to the Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Tribes Prevention Act is dangerous. In the last few months, the central government issued several orders.
The government could have been able to issue an ordinance to maintain the original provisions of this Act. But that did not happen. Due to this controversy, the atrocities against dalits have increased.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh expressed surprise when the Union Cabinet approved the amendment bill on Wednesday.
