Many parents have also turned against the ‘Dalit lady’ cook cooking. According to the school administration and the district police, the contract was given to Dhara Makwana by the Mamlatdar to prepare mid-day meal at Sokhda Primary School in Sokhda village in June.

On June 16, the female cook had cooked food for about 153 students. However, influenced by the words of their parents, 147 students from the OBC community refused to eat the food. As stated in a complaint filed before the Morbi Taluka Police Inspector recently.

Victim’s husband said this
Dhara’s husband Gopi Makwana told TOI, “Since the students were not sitting in the queue to get their food, I questioned some parents. He told me that he cannot let his children eat food prepared by a ‘Dalit woman’. Gopi said that a lot of food was wasted. After this the school management spoke to the parents but to no avail.

Gopi said, “I also lodged a complaint with the police, which was transferred to a DYSP. The police officials told me that this is a matter related to the school and the district administration and they cannot interfere in it.” Dhara said that she was tortured due to casteist bias and the police should intervene.

Principal’s meeting did not work
The school’s principal, Bindiya Ratnotar, confirmed the incident and said that she had held two meetings with the school monitoring committee which also included the parents but they were adamant. “They do not want to give up their casteist thinking. We can teach children not to have a casteist attitude and that all are equal and no one is untouchable. It’s sad that we can’t convince his parents.” District Primary Education Officer Bharat Virja said he was not aware of the matter and would investigate the matter.
