MP: Candidates for cop job labelled respective castes on chest

MP: Candidates for cop job labelled respective castes on chest

In the image, candidates could be seen standing with their castes being marked on chest.

Athawale further said that he will write to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan over the incident. This thinking earlier led to tying "handi" (small earthen pot) to their neck, led to tying broom to the body, did not allow them to enter temples.

"Reportedly, the caste stamps were used to avoid any kind of confusion among candidates, as height and chest measurement norms are different for constables belonging to general and reserved categories".

Ashok Gehlot, general secretary of All India Congress Committee also attacked the state government in his tweet "The treatment meted out to dalits in BJP ruled #MadhyaPradesh is shocking and condemnable. We will defeat this mindset". Madhya Pradesh Police have condemned the incident and Dhar Superintendent of Police Birendra Kumar denied issuing any such order. Elections to the Madhya Pradesh Assembly are due later this year. The district's SP has said that there is no ill-feeling or malice in this decision by the police. Mayawati also questioned the "silence" of top leaders including the prime minister on the issue.

Terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans dies
James, 20, posted a message on social media thanking everyone who supported the family through Alfie's illness and court fight. Alfie's parents have been backed by Pope Francis and Poland's President Andrzej Duda.


He ensured that those found guilty would be punished, according to an ANI report. "Appropriate action should be taken against officials responsible for it", said Athawale. Calling the Dhar incident a "criminal act", Mayawati said it was because of the casteist and spiteful attitude towards the Dalits, tribals and backwards that they were forced to convert as the Una case in Gujarat had shown.

She said the BJP needed to realise that the Dalits had a lot of self-respect and were vigilant about their interests: they would never be lured and trapped by anyone.

The candidates appearing for the post of Police Constable were labelled with their respective castes on their chest during medical examinations at a district hospital on April 29. "The PMO should probe the incident", she added.
