Disdainful attitude of officials as they ask Dalits to use soaps, scent to meet Yogi
The authorities in the Uttar Pradesh’s district of of Kushinagar has asked the member of ‘Mushar (who are considered as the untouchables) to wash their hands with scented soaps and shampoos before they come and meet with the chief minister Yogi.
The official visit by the authorities took them by surprise as the district is a neglected slum, where no such official have ever made a visit in order to inquire regarding the welfare and well being of the community member.
A resident of the area was heard saying “New toilets were constructed…dusty roads were made pitched and lights were installed within no time…” While another elder member shared, “We were also given scented soaps, shampoos and perfumes and asked to use them before going to meet the chief minister…”
According to the community members the official also asked residents to keep their homes neat and clean.
Such disdainful attitude by the authorities clearly indicates that they do not wish Yogi Aditiya to meet the community members, who according to them are “stinking people” and gives “stinking feeling”.
