Some important bills will be presented in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha today in this episode. The SC / ST act amendment bill to be introduced in the most important Lok Sabha is in it.
The Modi government, which is facing the resentment of the Dalit community on the issue of SC / ST Act, has taken this step. After the order of the Supreme Court, the changes in the Act were made and then the Dalits’ displeasure came out, the government was on backfoot. Now the government wants to do this by taking these steps. Let us know that this is the same bill under which the SC / ST Act will come in its original form.
On March 21 this year, the Supreme Court had banned immediate arrest in the cases registered under Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Torture Prevention Act (SC / ST Act 1989). The court had given the verdict that the arrest of government employees could only be done after the permission of the competent authority.
The Dalit organization had landed on the streets on April 2 against the Supreme Court verdict. The Dalit community had ‘closed India’ on April 2. The central government had to face the flames of protest. There was violence in many areas in the dalit movement across the country, in which a dozen people were killed.
