HUBLI: Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS, Hubli) has condemned the apathy of officials which forced the members of the Bhangi community to stage a bizarre protest at Savanur in Haveri district recently.

In a press release, regional RSS leader Shridar Nadiger said the incident, wherein the members of Bhangi community poured the faeces on them, "has made everybody hang their heads in the shame".

The government should wake up now and eradicate the inhuman system of carrying human excreta, he said. Nadiger urged the government to provide each member of Bhangi community of Savanur with a job in City Municipal Corporation. The government should also help their children pursue education, he added.

Seva Bharati Trust run by RSS volunteers is ready to provide necessary help to the family members of Bhangi community, he said.
