“If he (Yogi Adityanath) really loves Dalits then he should love them more than he loves Lord Hanuman. Has he ever embraced any Dalit? He might have been eating out dinner at Dalit households, but the cook was not Dalit. There are Assembly polls and they don’t have any issue left so they are terming Hanuman Ji as Dalit. They just want to take Dalit votes but now Dalits, backwards and Tribals of the country has now understood their dhong,” Phule had told news Agency PTI.
Phule had also demanded that if Lord Hanuman was a ‘Dalit’ as claimed by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, then Dalits should be appointed as pujaris in the all the Hanuman temples across the country. “Hanuman always stood by Lord Ram but then why did Ram award him a tail and blackened his face?” she said.
It is to be noted that Phule was elected to the Uttar Pradesh assembly in 2012 from Balha in Bahraich district as a candidate of BJP. She contested 2014 Lok Sabha election from Bahraich and became a member of 16th Lok Sabha.
