We launched moon mission but where's tech for sewer cleaning: Jignesh Mevani

Independent MLA Jignesh Mevani on Tuesday challenged Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani to declare any one village "untouchability-free" before the upcoming Independence Day and maintained the social evil was still prevalent in the state. Speaking in the legislative Assembly, he came down heavily on the BJP government in Gujarat over the issue of atrocities against Dalits. Referring to the successful launch of Chandrayaan-2 mission on Monday, Mevani said while it shows expertise in space, there exists no technology to prevent death of sanitation workers engaged in cleaning sewers or septic tanks. "It is the need of the hour for the government to visit villages where Dalits are subjected to untouchability and discrimination such as not allowing them to fetch water from common well. "The government should book the guilty under the Protection of Civil Rights Act. But, the sad part is that no offence is registered," the Dalit leader said. The MLA from Vadgam in Banaskantha district was speaking on his 'cut-motion' moved against the budgetary demands of the Social Justice and Empowerment department. "Whenever an incident of atrocity takes place, media persons ask me Rs when will I visit that place'. Now, it is my humble appeal to Vijay Rupani, known to be a sarva-mitra' (friend of all), to be a 'Dalit-mitra' and visit such places. "I want him to declare any one village of Gujarat untouchability-free before August 15," he said.
