Hitting out at BJP's Dalit outreach programme, the chief claimed that Dalits did not participate in the yatra, whose concluding session was addressed by president in today.

She said and workers were made to participate in the programme "projecting them as Dalits."

The 'baudh bhikshus' felicitated at the yatra were also the ones belonging to these organisations, the statement said.

said, "The BJP's Dhamma yatra was similar to Prime Minister Modi's attempts to do politics on a religious occasion like he did in Lucknow on Dussehra, in order to help his party which is in a very bad shape in the state".

The six-month long Dhamma Chetna Yatra concluded at today. Dalits, who have converted to Buddhism took part in the programme, where a few monks were also felicitated. The yatra is seen as yet another attempt by the to reach out to the backward community in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.
