Udit Raj referred to a host of recent cases, including in Gujarat, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala and Tamil Nadu in which
dalits were attacked.

He also spoke about recent beating up of dalits in Patna and killing of a dalit couple in Mainpuri in Uttar Pradesh for Rs 15.

"Incidents of atrocities against dalits are happening in various parts of the country——it should be discussed," he said.

The government had recently rejected the opposition's demand for a similar debate, saying the issue has already been raised in Parliament.
