Dalits from Bhagana village (Haryana) have reached Delhi covering a 200 km journey on foot in this sweltering summer heat, half naked, as a protest against the Khap Panchayat of Bhagana Jats. They have sat on a Dharna at Jantar Mantar, in the hope that the government will intervene on the matter and render them justice. Dalits of Bhagana are the victims of the notorious Khap, which has not only grabbed the land of Dalits but also imposed a complete social boycott on them. Not just this, the Jats have built a wall on the street to prevent Dalits from going to their fields, and also did not let their cattle drink water in the public pond. They openly started harassing the Dalit women. For few days, the Dalits faced the situation and later approached the district administration for relief. To live in the village in this dangerous situation was very painful, but approaching the administration turned out to be a futile effort. Therefore all the 126 Dalit families, along with all their belongings and cattle, moved to the Mini Secretariat of Hisar district and started their protest demonstration which is going on for the last two months.

JNUSU, which claims itself to be very sensitive for social justice within the campus, did not pay any heed to the cry of the 150 Dalits families sitting at Jantar Mantar for the last 10 days. It is very shameful that AISA led JNUSU did not even bother to bring out a poster on solidarity with the Dalits of Bhagana fighting for social justice. The so called leftist student organizations like SFI and AISA are not even concerned to fight for the proper implementation of SC/ST/OBC reservation in the admissions of Delhi University though they always shout for a broader student unity across different castes and classes. The ongoing crisis in CPI (M) supporting the Neo Liberal monster Pranab Mukherjee is depicting their hypocrisy and the caste-class character. On the other hand , one can notice the caste character of CPI(ML) which claims to be a (R)evolutionary Marxist party as they are totally silent on the issue related to the murder of Brahmeswar Mukhia- the head of upper caste private militia Ranveer Sena, and the plights of Dalits in Bathani Tola. Dalits of Bathani Tola do not dare to even walk wearing new clothes before Bhumihar people even today.

AIBSF/UDSF together invite all progressive forces to join the public meeting on 'Bhagana's Dalits and Caste Atrocities in Haryana' at Kaveri Mess at 9 pm, 13 July 2012.
