Telangana CM KCR: Amit Shah dined with Dalits, but got food from outside

An angry Telangana Chief Minister, K Chandrasekhar Rao, has called BJP national president Amit Shah’s lunch with Dalits in Nalgonda district a “big drama” and a “gimmick”.

“Lunch with dalits means the food has to prepared in a Dalit colony. He should sit on the ground along with Dalits to eat. But, the food that was served to him was prepared by one Manohar Reddy at his farmhouse,”said Rao, adding that Amit Shah used a chair and table to eat food while Dalits were standing behind.

“He insulted Dalits with this act. I got feedback from local Dalits there who told how they felt humiliated and insulted by this,” Rao said, insisting that there was enough proof to show that the food served to Amit Shah at Peddadevulapalli was prepared at the local upper caste Annapurna mess.

Media reports confirmed that Shah visited a Dalit family in Peretapalli in Nalgonda district for a Dalit home meal with a troop of media persons to record this one-time event for posterity. But, the food was prepared in the mango orchard of a upper caste landlord in a neighbouring village.

A local Dalit leader Chinta Sambamurthy stood by the table and watched while Amit Shah ate with a spoon from a plantain leaf. For the following day's Dalit home lunch in Bhongir, the food was purchased from the Pedda Devulapalli Annapurna Mess, a upper caste eatery.
