On 2nd April, 2019 it was the first anniversary of the nationwide shut down by Dalits against the amendment in the SC/ST act. Dalit youth in Meerut were trying organise a peaceful rally to mark the day, but the police refused them permission. Hundreds of police personnel were sent to stop the protest demonstration. After the protest demonstration, ChalChitra Abhiyaan spoke with Dalit youth from Meerut to understand why they are upset with the government and why they consider it ‘Manuvadi’ and against the interests of marginalised communities.
