MEERUT: A delegation of sanitary workers on Monday protested at the collectorate, seeking strict action against those who pasted posters with casteist slurs on Tilak Road.
The Bhartiya Valmiki Mahasabha asked district magistrate Pankaj Yadav to pull up the Resident Welfare Association (RWA) of Tilak Road for allegedly pasting the posters.
Mukul Kumar Gahlot, general secretary of the organization, said, “The language of the posters which are pasted by the Tilak road RWA was objectionable. They abused our community. We asked the administration to take immediate strict action against the RWA. We have also written to the state
government and SC/ST commission in this regard.”
