GnNews:BSP seeks withdrawal of cases filed during Bharat Bandh, threatens to withdraw support to Congress in MP, Rajasthan

While asking the Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan governments to withdraw cases filed during the Bharat Bandh held earlier this year over the alleged "dilution" of SCs/STs (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, BSP said that if the Congress fails to do so then it would reconsider its decision to give outside support to the Congress in both states.

A statement released by the party reads, "We demand that cases filed by the then BJP government in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan during the 'Bharat Bandh' held on 2 April 2018 for SC/ST Act, 1989 and reservation in promotion of government workers to be withdrawn. If these demands are not met, we'll reconsider our decision to give outside support to Congress."
