People of Dalit community took to streets in Ludhiana and Jalandhar in Punjab on Sunday to protest against yoga guru Baba Ramdev's controversial remark on Rahul Gandhi and the community. Ramdev on Friday had commented that the Congress party's vice-president Rahul Gandhi visited households of Dalit community for picnics and honeymoon. The remark from Ramdev, who is an avid supporter of the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, was not only seen as a political attack on Rahul Gandhi but also as an insult to the women of Dalit community.
