Dalits student from the Himachal Pradesh’s Kullu District told to sit outside the school during the live telecast of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Pariksha Par Charcha” Programme, where PM interacted with thousands of students from across the country. PM Modi addressed students examination concerns in the programme. Dalit Students were told to sit in courtyard which is  apparently used for cattles and horses, and not to leave the place midway as this would make them lose marks.

After the following caste discrimination, some student lodged a complaint with kullu deputy commissioner. Apart from this incident students have also complained of untouchability and served midday meals separately. A local dalit organization lodged a protest over the matter with school and deputy director of education on saturday.

Education Minister of State, Suresh Bhardwaj said stern action would be taken against guilty. "This matter has come to my notice today. I have asked the education secretary to get a report and act sternly. I have also been told that Dalit students were discriminated earlier too in the school while serving mid-day meals. We will not spare the guilty if reports are true,” he said.
