The count of Dalit lawmakers from the BJP hitting out against their own government for what they call discrimination against Dalits has gone up to four, including three from Uttar Pradesh, a state the party swept in the 2014 general elections and the assembly polls last year.The latest entrant to the list -- Ashok Kumar Dohrey, who represents Etawah in Lok Sabha -- has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that there have been a series of arrests of Dalits after Monday's violence in western Uttar Pradesh in which two Dalit boys were killed. "Dalits are being targeted by the police and false cases are being registered against them. Innocent people are being pulled out of their homes and beaten, caste slurs are being hurled at them," Mr Dohrey wrote in his letter.
