Patna, Oct. 21: The Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) on Wednesday condemned the death of two Dalit children in Ballabhgarh in Faridabad after their house was set on fire allegedly by members of the Rajput community, and at the same time, appealed to other political parties not to give the tragedy a political twist or seek mileage from it.
“Faridabad incident occurred due to internal rivalry. It is very unfortunate and the accused have also been arrested. I want to appeal to the political parties to visit Ballabhgarh, but not give it a political colour. Law and order is very strict there and the accused will not be spared,” BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma told ANI here.
