Bharatiya MP from has claimed that Lord was a Dalit, but a slave of the 'Manuwadi' people. She said that rather than focusing on the construction of Temple, the should think about the Constitution of and make all castes equal.

"Lord was a and a slave of 'Manuwadi' people. If he were as a and a human, they why he was given a tail and his face was blackened. Why those who helped Lord were made monkeys? Why Lord did give him the look of money? He was made a monkey because he was a Today also he is being dishonoured by getting called a Dalit. Dalits should also be kept as priests in temples since Lord was a Dalit," Phule told media here.

She added, "I think they start remembering Lord Hanuman whenever the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and other backward classes ask for the implementation of Constitution in totality.

"We don't want in Ayodhya. They are just creating an issue out of since elections are not far away. If crores of money were not spent on Kumbh Mela and Ram temple and given to the poor people in the country, then they would have also progressed. But they don't want to give money to the poor. They want to give it for the temple. They want to make the people as their slaves," Phule said.
