A group of Dalits from Andhra Pradesh's Garagaparru village is in the national capital to seek help against the community's "social boycott" allegedly by an upper caste group over the installation of an Ambedkar statue.

The group comprising four villagers today said the boycott by "upper caste landlords" was continuing and posing "livelihood and safety issues" for the families in the West Godavari district village.

They are trying to meet central government ministers, MPs and the National Human Rights Commission over the issue.
