Saddened by the demise of a nine-year-old Dalit boy in an alleged caste crime, Rajasthan MLA Pana Chand Meghwal sent his resignation to CM Ashok Gehlot on Monday. The Congress MLA said he doesn't have the right to continue if he cannot protect his community. This comes after the boy—allegedly thrashed by an "upper caste" teacher last month for touching his waterpot—died on Saturday.
