Karnataka - Shimoga

Don't get drawn to communal politics, Dalits told

Special Correspondent

SHIMOGA: Director of Distance Education of Kuvempu University Rajendra
Chenni said here on Monday that there was a need to check Dalits from
getting drawn to communal politics.

He was speaking after inaugurating the 72nd birth anniversary of B.
Krishnappa and the "Dalit Swabhiman Sangharsh Diwas" organised by the
Shimoga unit of Karnataka Dalit Sangharsh Samiti.

Prof. Chenni warned Dalits that there was no future for them in
capitalism and communal politics.

Educational programmes were being implemented for their development to
enable them to cope with present market trends, he said. There was a
need to fight communalism and the "Manuwadi" caste practices, he
added.

Convener of the State Dalit Sangharsh Samiti M. Gurumurthy presided
over the function. Office-bearer of the samiti N. Giriyappa, district
Dalit Sangharsh Samiti convener T.H. Halappa and C.K. Mahesh were
present.
