A Dalit farmer couple consumed pesticide in front of their children in Madhya Pradesh’s Guna because the police tried to destroy their crops and evict the couple’s family from a piece of “government-owned land.” Following this, videos emerged on the internet in which the police can be seen clearly thrashing locals, including children, in that area.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and BJP MP Jyotiraditya Scindia, among others, have condemned the incident.

‘What is the Difference Between BJP and Congress,’ Asks Mayawati

National President of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and former chief minister of UP (Uttar Pradesh), Mayawati, on Thursday, alleged that the actions of the Guna police and administration were extremely cruel, as well as shameful.

“What is then the difference between Congress and BJP? Dalits should think about this,” Mayawati said.

Further, she said that while on one hand the Bhartiya Janta Party, as well as the MP government claim to be pro-Dalits, on the other hand the attempts at their eviction are just as common as they were during the Congress party’s reign.

“What is then the difference between the two parties? Dalits should think about this,” she said.
