“Central to the RSS/ BJP fascist ideology, is that Dalits & Adivasis must continue to exist at the bottom rung of society.

Rahul’s latest video came a day after he had released a ‘primer on BJP’s candidate selection’. He had raised questions on the BJP for making Yeddyurapaa, who has 23 cases of cheating and forgery against him, its CM candidate.
“Will you speak for 5 minutes on 8 tickets to the Reddy Brothers Gang?, Rahul asked PM on Twitter via a video. The accompanying clip showed BJP candidates who have cases against them. It ended with the Reddy brothers accused of illegal mining in iron-ore rich Ballary, and the text, addressing Modi, says: “PS. You can refer to a paper for an answer.”
