What Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Labour Party (UK) said about Dalits


In 2012, Mr Corbyn told parliament –

Dalits are the largest group of people in the world who are systematically discriminated against on the basis of their descent and caste. They perform the worst jobs in the dirtiest conditions, and have the shortest life expectancy, the lowest level of education, the worst housing and the lowest pay and employment levels of any group in India, or indeed, the rest of the world.
