A shocking incident of caste discrimination comes to light from the State of Tamil Nadu. A Dalit Panchayat President named S Rajeshwari was made to sit on the ground amid a panchayat meeting in Chidambaram during a meeting by caste Hindu Deputy Panchayat Secretary.
After the video of Dalit President Rajeswari sitting on the floor during meeting went viral, a complaint was registered, based on which Panchayat Secretary Sinduja was suspended and then was arrested under Prevention of Atrocities against SC/ST Act.
Rajeshwari even claimed that ‘I was told by Mohanrajan and others not to speak during any of the meetings. They said they will discuss and sort out all the problems and asked me to keep quiet’.
