BJP president Amit Shah on Thursday accused his Congress counterpart Rahul Gandhi of "inciting hatred" in society with his "lie" that the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act has been revoked.

Shah, who is on a tour of Odisha, tagged on Twitter a short video of Rahul’s speech in which he is heard telling people in a rally that "atrocities against Dalits and tribals are rising and the SC/ST Act is revoked. Narendra Modi Ji does not say a word."

Hitting back, Shah said, "Lies and only Lies! See how Rahul Gandhi fictitiously revokes the SC/ST Act to incite hatred in society."

A recent ruling by the Supreme Court on the act, which, several Dalit groups say, has diluted the law, had triggered protests with the Opposition parties accusing the government of not doing enough.

The government has moved the apex court seeking a review of its March 20 judgement on the Act, while the BJP has charged the Opposition with playing politics over the sensitive issue.

At least 11 people were killed in the violent protests during the ’Bharat Bandh’ called by Dalit groups on Monday against the court’s ruling.

With the Dalit vote swings holding key to the BJP’s electoral prospects in the coming polls, especially in the Lok Sabha elections next year, the ruling party has renewed its bid to reach out to the community, underlining its commitment to constitutional and statutory benefits accorded to them.
