Jignesh Mevani, an MLA from the Vadgam Assembly Constituency, Gujarat appealed on Twitter to the Government of Gujarat and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for protection of 116 Dalits whom he claims are at risk due to growing intolerance towards Dalits. Before this, he has sought to subvert the caste hierarchy by fighting for their rights. The Dalits hailing from the Kutch region of Gujarat are allegedly attacked for cultivating their lands. In a plea, via Twitter, he is seeking help from the concerned authorities.
