Terming the killing of two Dalit children in Madhya Pradesh for defecating in the open “unfortunate”, BSP president Mayawati on Wednesday slammed the successive BJP and Congress governments in the state for “failing to provide proper toilet facilities”. The two Dalit children were allegedly beaten to death by two persons for defecating on a street in front of a panchayat building in Madhya Pradesh’s Shivpuri district on Wednesday.

“Besides keeping millions of Dalits, backwards and religious minorities deprived of government facilities, they have also been made a victim of all kinds of malicious atrocities and in such a situation the dastardly violence of two Dalit youth in Madhya Pradesh’s Shivpuri is most unfortunate and condemnable,” the BSP chief tweeted.
