    Speaking to reporters, Mayawati said, " We expect that the Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill, 2018, that has been passed in Lok Sabha, will also be passed in Rajya Sabha. Although the Bill was implemented late our party welcomes it."

    Mayawati thanked Dalit groups for successfully pressurising the Centre to retain the earlier provisions of the Bill.

    "Our party gives credit of implementation of this Bill to ST/SC people of the country which includes BSP supporters too, who successfully conducted Bharat Bandh on April 2 and pressurised the Centre & BJP govt to retain the earlier provisions of the Bill," said Mayawati.

    On April 2, 2018 dalit organisations in North India called for a Bharat Bandh in order to protest Supreme Court's dilution of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. Five states witnessed violence as protesters tried to enforce the bandh. Train services were hit in parts of Bihar, Odisha, Punjab and Rajasthan.
