The Navsarjan trust revealed that the Gujarat BJP government are not spending money allocated for dalit welfare: in Gujarat "over the last decade nearly Rs 3,689 crore of funds for targeted programmes to uplift dalits and economically and socially backward classes, went unutilized". Meanwhile in UP the BJP is spreading the communal lie that "Ambedkar disliked Muslims" in an attempt to break Dalit-Muslim electoral alliances.
